About Hirschfeld Towers

Public housing tenants living in elderly/disabled housing are permitted to keep no more than 1 dog or 1 cat per unit. No more than two small, caged birds may be kept in any unit. An aquarium for fish may not exceed 10 gallons. No more than two (2) small animals, i.e. gerbil or hamster, may be kept in any unit. Small animals must be kept in a cage at all times. No exotic, wild or dangerous animals, snakes or any other animal not permitted in residential units by state or local laws, ordinances or this policy may be kept by tenants. No pet’s mature growth shall exceed 18 inches in height, measured from ground to shoulder, nor weigh more than 30 pounds. A refundable pet deposit will be charged for each dwelling unit where a dog or cat resides. The pet deposit will be equal to one months rent with minimum of $50 and a maximum of $100. Dogs and cats are required to be spayed or neutered. Dogs and cats must have the proper inoculations required by law, and be certified by a veterinarian licensed to practice in the State of Colorado. This policy does not apply to assistance animals that assist persons with disabilities.

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.

Public Housing

Since this property is owned and managed by a Public Housing Authority, all of the rents at this property are based on tenant incomes. Tenants will make a monthly contribution toward rent equal to 30% of their adjusted income. A housing authority may establish a minimum rent of up to $50.

These general income qualifications for Denver, Colorado should only be used as a basic guide. To find out if you qualify, contact the community directly.

Hirschfeld Towers was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program and receives rental subsidies through HUD-Assisted Housing. These programs have different income limits that can lead to apartments in the same property having different income requirements.

You can make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and be eligible for a HUD-Assisted Housing unit. However, you can earn at most 60% of AMI to be eligible for a LIHTC property and many units may be set aside for those with the lowest incomes (down to 15% of AMI). LIHTC properties may also contain some market rate units.

Since Hirschfeld Towers has both programs, the most restrictive of the income limits will apply for each unit. If the entire property is funded by LIHTC, the LIHTC income limit of 60% AMI would be used for all units. Apartments in properties with some units not funded by the LIHTC, but receiving Section 8 assistance, would be open to households making up to 80% AMI. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.

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.

Hirschfeld Towers is managed by Denver Housing Authority.
