Mission Gateway is a mixed-use development that combines affordable family housing with 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Located near the East Bay foothills, the community provides a beautiful entrance to Union City. Working with the Redevelopment Agency of Union City, MidPen Housing helped the city achieve its goals of creating new housing and business opportunities by transforming the site, once occupied by abandoned and dilapidated buildings, into the Mission Gateway community. A landscaped courtyard with space for playing and relaxing is located over the parking garage. The community building includes a hall with a kitchen, art room, computer lab, gym and resident services office. Other amenities include a barbecue area, swimming pool, children’s play area and basketball half-court.

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.
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 Union City but actual income limits may differ for units at Mission Gateway.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|
|Very Low Income (50%)||$45,700||$52,200||$58,750||$65,250||$70,500||$75,700||$80,950||$86,150|
|Low Income (60%)||$54,840||$62,640||$70,500||$78,300||$84,600||$90,840||$97,140||$103,380|
Mission Gateway 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 Gateway is managed by MidPen Housing.
