Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.

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.
Since this property is subsidized in part through the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD), some apartments may have Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) or Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers (PBV). With either type of subsidy, tenant rent payments are 30% of their adjusted monthly income. Households earning less than 80% of the area median income may qualify for PBRA or PBV reduced rents. Some of these subsidized apartments may be reserved for extremely low-income households earning less than 30% of the area median income. If the apartment has a PBV, the tenant may qualify for a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) after living there at least one year. Some rental units in this property may not have PBRA or PBV subsidies and therefore may have higher rents.
This property was built or rehabilitated with a tax-exempt bond.
Ellis Gardens is managed by Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC).
