Mercy Housing acquired they property in 2001 to preserve the property as affordable housing. In 2004, Mercy Housing completed a $7 million renovation of this early 1900's apartment building with approximately 6,500 square feet of available retail space to serve the community. Catholic Charities CYO has been the on-site service provider since 1992 and continues to provide much needed services to the residents.

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 Francisco but actual income limits may differ for units at Derek Silva Community.
