In partnership with the Delaware Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDDS), The Arc of Delaware Housing program supports safe, accessible and affordable group homes in neighborhood communities. To date, over 80 properties throughout the state have been built or acquired, including several in Wilmington, providing DDDS with residential capacity for more than 320 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities ( I/DD). In addition to comprehensive property management, a 24-hour maintenance team provides emergency services as needed to keep these residences safe and comfortable for the residents and attractive for their neighborhoods. A group home monitoring program uses volunteers to visit and evaluate both the interior conditions and curb appeal of all properties owned by The Arc on a regular basis. Addresses in Wilmington include 119 S Cleveland Ave, 2412 Grubb Rd, and 3607 Mill Creek Rd.
Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's current Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program or legacy Section 202 program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one adult member with a disability. Tenants pay rent based on household income. This rent is usually the highest of the following three amounts: either 30% adjusted monthly income, or 10% unadjusted monthly income, or, if receiving welfare assistance, the housing costs portion of this assistance.
Some of the units at this property have received funding through HUD's Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program. For these PRA funded units, tenants must be extremely low-income (at or below 30% of Area Median Income) and at least one adult member of the household must have a disability. The person with the disability must be eligible for community-based, long-term services as provided under the state’s plan for medical assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act (Medicaid), state funded services or other appropriate services defined in the written partnership agreement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in a HUD rental assistance program in Wilmington but actual income limits may differ for units at The Arc of Delaware.
