About John Burns Gardens

John Burns Gardens, named in honor of retired Executive Director of the Housing Authority who led the agency for more than 30 years, is one of three projects built by the Housing Authority that was designated as the affordable housing component of the Rivermark Master-Planned community at the old Santa Clara Agnews Hospital site. The development plan includes more than 1,800 homes, a new park, elementary school, retail and commercial center, Safeway market, restaurants and more.

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.

Santa Clara 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 Santa Clara but actual income limits may differ for units at John Burns Gardens.

AMI Band 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person 7 Person 8 Person
Very Low Income (50%) $51,250 $58,550 $65,850 $73,150 $79,050 $84,900 $90,750 $96,600
Low Income (60%) $61,500 $70,260 $79,020 $87,780 $94,860 $101,880 $108,900 $115,920

John Burns Gardens 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.

John Burns Gardens is managed by The John Stewart Company.
