About Mission Creek Senior Community

Mission Creek Senior Community is the result of Mercy Housing California's collaboration with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the San Francisco Public Library. In collaboration with these organizations MHC developed 139 units of affordable senior housing, an Adult Day Health Center, ground floor retail space, and the newest branch of the San Francisco Public Library. The library was turned over to the city upon completion. Mission Creek is located along a tidal creek with walking trails and plentiful green space, yet near several forms of public transit and neighborhood amenities. The community serves very low income seniors, many of whom are at risk of homelessness or who have HIV/AIDS. Mission Creek has won 13 design awards and recognitions.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.

San Francisco Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Income Limits

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 Mission Creek Senior Community.

AMI Band 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person 7 Person 8 Person
Very Low Income (50%) $56,450 $64,500 $72,550 $80,600 $87,050 $93,500 $99,950 $106,400
Low Income (60%) $67,740 $77,400 $87,060 $96,720 $104,460 $112,200 $119,940 $127,680

Mission Creek Senior Community 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.

Mission Creek Senior Community is managed by Mercy Housing.
