Dave's Thoughts On Tennessee Town l & ll

This LIHTC property is among the most common types of affordable rental housing in the United States. The LIHTC programonly provides subsidies to the building’s owner at construction. The LIHTC program doesn't provide direct subsidies to the residents, but the owner must set rents affordable to low-income renters in the area. You would not pay more than 30% of your income for rent. To qualify, you must earn 50% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), which you can find on this page’s income chart. LIHTC properties tend to have shorter waiting lists however, since Tennessee Town l & ll has a project-based subsidy, the waiting list is likely much longer than other local LIHTC properties. Records show this property may have been recently associated with the Public Housing program, which means it could have a new RAD Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance contract. LIHTC properties tend to have shorter waiting lists however, since this property may have a project-based subsidy, the waiting list may be much longer than other local LIHTC properties. LIHTC properties nationwide are required to accept housing vouchers however, if this property has a RAD Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance contract, your Section 8 voucher cannot be used here. LIHTC properties were first built in the late 1980's and the LIHTC program funds the renovation of older properties. Because they tend to be newer or renovated, these properties are more likely to have larger units, more amenities, and greater tenant service offerings than other affordable housing programs. This property might be right for you if you need help paying your rent and are willing to wait for a possibly longer waiting list if this is indeed a RAD property.
