Located in the heart of the Tenderloin, Kelly Cullen Community was built by the YMCA in 1910. In addition to on-site social services run by TNDC, the site includes the Tom Waddell Urban Health Clinic — a ground floor Department of Public Health managed health clinic providing primary health care to homeless and formerly homeless clients.
The building includes restored historic features, a 2nd floor atrium and auditorium, a 5th floor gymnasium, green building design for energy efficiency and indoor air quality, and use of healthy materials for flooring and paint.
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.
This project has received some funding from a participating jurisdiction (local or state government agency) through the HUD HOME Investments Partnerships Program (HOME). In projects with five or more HOME-assisted units, at least 20% of these units must be occupied by families earning 50% or less of area median income (AMI). All other HOME-assisted units must be occupied by families earning 80% or less of AMI, but in practice most are reserved for families earning 60% or less AMI. Maximum monthly rent is capped with a Low HOME Rent for <50% AMI units and a High HOME Rent for the remaining HOME-assisted units. Contact the property directly for the specific dollar amount of these rent caps.
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 Kelly Cullen Community.
