Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a LIHTC property that might not have a project based rental assistance contract, it is likely that it either has no waiting list or the waiting list is shorter than properties with rental assistance. You should contact the property to verify.

Note: Affordable Housing Online has not confirmed the waiting list status directly with the property. This waiting list status forecast is based on our housing experts' knowledge of similar properties. You should always confirm this status directly with the property.

Lexington Commons is permanent supportive housing that offers studio apartments for individuals who meet the definition of Chronic homelessness, which means an individual with a disabling condition who has either: experienced homelessness for longer than a year, during which time the individual may have lived in a shelter, Safe Haven, or a place not meant for human habitation or experienced homelessness four or more times in the last three years.
 

Lexington Commons is partnered with St. Paul Public Housing Agency (PHA) to implement the Project-Based Voucher Program for each unit. The Project Based Voucher Program provides a rental subsidy that allows a Resident to pay approximately 30% of their income towards rent.  Applicants for the units at Lexington Commons are obtained through Coordinated Entry, a process developed to ensure that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access and are quickly identified, assessed for, referred, and connected to housing and assistance based on their strengths and needs. 

As a permanent supportive housing provider, Lexington Commons integrates housing and services through a site-based supportive housing service model that combines service coordination functions with residential case management and interdisciplinary specializations in mental health, chemical health, and vocational services. 

Dave's Thoughts On Lexington Commons

This LIHTC property is among the most common types of affordable rental housing in the United States. The LIHTC program only provides subsidies to the building’s owner at construction. No subsidies are provided directly to the residents, but the owner must set rents affordable to low-income renters in the area. Our data suggests Lexington Commons does not participate in any project-based rent subsidy program. This means you must earn enough to pay the full rent or have your own Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher. For that reason, LIHTC properties tend to have shorter waiting lists or even none at all. LIHTC properties nationwide are required to accept housing vouchers. LIHTC properties were first built in the late 1980's. Because they tend to be newer, 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 have a housing voucher or enough income to pay rent, are looking for a high quality property, or need immediate availability. Since this property participates in the LIHTC program, the property is required to accept Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. As a LIHTC property that chose the 40/60 election, this property has agreed to set aside at least 40% of its units for families and individuals earning 60% of Area Median Income (AMI). Many properties have actually set aside more units than required by law, and in many cases all of the units at these properties are affordable to renters with lower incomes. Since this property participates in the LIHTC program, the property is required to accept Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers.
