Las Palmas Foundation and Global Premier Development partnered in building this 45-unit large family apartment community in San Ysidro, California. El Pedregal opened in May of 2010 and provides high-quality affordable apartments for large families in San Diego County. The community was named “2011 HOUSING PROJECT OF THE YEAR, 50 Units or Less” by San Diego Housing Federation.

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in San Diego but actual income limits may differ for units at El Pedregal Apartments.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|
|Very Low Income (50%)||$40,450||$46,200||$52,000||$57,750||$62,400||$67,000||$71,650||$76,250|
|Low Income (60%)||$48,540||$55,440||$62,400||$69,300||$74,880||$80,400||$85,980||$91,500|
El Pedregal Apartments was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. In addition to providing apartments for low-income households, this property could include some market rate units. Households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) qualify for targeted rental units in LIHTC financed housing. This property may also designate units for renters with even lower incomes, from 60% of AMI down to 30% AMI. It is even possible that all units have been set aside for those with extremely low incomes (as low as 15% of AMI). This means that the same size unit can rent for different amounts based on the income of the renter.
Figuring out income and rent limits for affordable housing can be complex especially when more than one federal program is involved. To know for sure if you qualify, you must contact the property directly. The amounts provided here should only be used as a basic guide.
El Pedregal Apartments is managed by Buckingham Property Management.
