About Clare Court

Clare Court is an award winning, unique, inter-generational apartment community Baltimore, Maryland offering affordable one, two and four bedroom apartment homes. A remarkable place to live, Clare Court is located on breathtaking grounds that offer endless green space and historic building architecture.

All of the apartments include fully-equipped kitchens with microwaves, hardwood flooring and/or carpeting, large closets and individually-controlled heating and air conditioning. Many services and amenities are offered to residents including our beautiful Stone House used for activities and events. Our exceptional management and maintenance staff are ready to assist the residents in any way possible.

Located on the edge of the Ednor Gardens-Lakeside neighborhood of Baltimore City, you can take advantage of the conveniences of city living without the city noise. The 33rd Street and Ellerslie Avenue bus stop is located steps away from the community and shopping, recreation and entertainment are within close proximity as well.

Clare Court was built by Catholic sisters in 1917 and served as an orphanage, school, and convent before it was converted to its present use as affordable housing. Part of the beautiful ten acre property continues today to serve as a convent home and chapel for the Sisters of St Francis of Assisi. In order to continue their mission, the Sisters joined with Homes for America, a nonprofit housing developer who created 30 units of housing. The overall goal of Clare Court is to help create and preserve families and foster intergenerational living in the community.

Residents of all ages are welcome, income limits apply, and all units have rental assistance through the Section 8 Program.

Call today to receive more information about applying to this extraordinary apartment community! We promise you won't find anything like it around!

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.

Baltimore Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Income Limits

Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in Baltimore but actual income limits may differ for units at Clare Court.

AMI Band 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person 7 Person 8 Person
Very Low Income (50%) $35,350 $40,400 $45,450 $50,500 $54,550 $58,600 $62,650 $66,700
Low Income (60%) $42,420 $48,480 $54,540 $60,600 $65,460 $70,320 $75,180 $80,040

Clare Court was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. In addition to providing apartments for low-income households, this property could include some market rate units. Households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) qualify for targeted rental units in LIHTC financed housing. This property may also designate units for renters with even lower incomes, from 60% of AMI down to 30% AMI. It is even possible that all units have been set aside for those with extremely low incomes (as low as 15% of AMI). This means that the same size unit can rent for different amounts based on the income of the renter.

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.

Clare Court is managed by Habitat America LLC.
