Olathe Towers and College Way Village offer income-based housing for households where at least one person is 62 older and for those who are disabled.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development provides rental assistance, and the Good Samaritan Society manages the apartments.
As part of a HUD-subsidized community, you'll only pay 30 percent of your gross income for your monthly rent here.
Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one member age 62 years or older. 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.
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 a HUD rental assistance program in Olathe but actual income limits may differ for units at College Way Village.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|

You can usually make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) to be eligible for a HUD-Assisted Housing unit, but income qualification tiers for this community may be different due to various policies.
College Way Village receives rental subsidies through HUD-Assisted Housing for some or all of its apartments. Some units may be designated as market rate housing. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.
College Way Village is managed by The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.
