Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a HOME program property that might not have a project based rental assistance contract, it is likely that it either has no waiting list or the waiting list is shorter than properties with rental assistance. You should contact the property to verify.

Note: Affordable Housing Online has not confirmed the waiting list status directly with the property. This waiting list status forecast is based on our housing experts' knowledge of similar properties. You should always confirm this status directly with the property.

The Orchard consists of the acquisition and rehabilitation of an existing, market rate community in the City of Santa Ana, California. The development’s housing units serve chronically homeless residents earning at or below 60% of the Area Median Income. The project is financed with 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits, Tax Exempt Bond Financing, City of Santa Ana Home Loan, Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention Loan and Project Based Vouchers. Guest House offers a community garden, commercial kitchen, outdoor courtyard, laundry facilities and on-site parking.

Project-Based Vouchers

Dave's Thoughts On The Orchard

Because The Orchard participates in HUD's HOME program for rental housing, at least some of the units in this property are set aside for households at or below 60% of the AMI and rents are capped at the local FMR and in many cases much lower. For a project of this size, some of the units are set aside for households at or below 50% AMI with a corresponding lower rent cap. As this property appears not to have a project-based subsidy or any other Federal assistance, you likely will have to pay your own rent, albeit, at a lower rent amount thanks to the HOME program. Since this property participates in the HOME program, the property is required to accept Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers.
