Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a Section 811 property and includes rental assistance, it will tend to have a longer waiting list. Sometimes these waiting lists can be months or years long and may or may not be accepting new applicants. You should contact the property to verify.

Independence Hill in Moscow, Idaho, opened in 2006. Independence Hill allows people with developmental disabilities to live independently rather than in a group home or other facility. A former board member planted the seed for building an independent living facility inspired by her son. The property features 14 units of supportive housing near the campus of the University of Idaho. The building includes a community room and a courtyard. All of Independence Hill's units are full, showcasing the need for similar properties that provide the opportunity for self-reliance within the framework of a supportive community. Every day, the residents at Independence Hill show how their lives are improving as a result of the services at the property.

Through an agreement with HUD, Independence Hill rents apartments under the HUD PRAC811 housing assistance payment program. This program provides maximum income limits for those seeking housing and residents never pay more than 30% of their income on rent.

Dave's Thoughts On Independence Hill

As a Section 811 property, this apartment community only allows persons with disabilities. A person of any age with a disability, and an income at or below 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI), qualifies for residency. In addition, Independence Hill is highly desirable because it offers rent subsidies and will tend to have a longer waiting list. This program was first introduced in 1990, so these younger properties are generally in good condition. Since the property includes a rent subsidy, you would pay no more than 30% of your income toward rent. Most of these properties include a resident services coordinator that organizes and facilitates services like healthcare management, transportation, and social activities. If you are a low-income person with a disability and need some help maintaining independent living, this property might be right for you. Since this property participates in the HUD 811 program and has a property based subsidy, if you have a Section 8 voucher, you would have to give up your voucher to move in.
