The Hansen RAD LLC administers 147 Project Based Voucher (PBV) units in two (2) senior citizens and/or disabled high rise buildings. The RAD provides safe and decent housing to senior citizens and disabled individuals. These units are financed through HUD’s section 8 program and NJHMFA low-income tax credits (LIHTC). Applicants must be eligible according to the very-low income limits established by HUD. Families pay 30% of their total family adjusted gross income as rent, which is capped at the LIHTC maximum rents.
Applicants must supply income of all family members, provide U.S. citizenship and/or immigration status and provide social security numbers. The RAD also does a credit, criminal and housing screening check through third party verification with other agencies and also computer matching. Upon completion of the screening process the eligible family or individual would be offered a unit according to family composition and family needs; handicapped accessible unit (accessible and designed with ramps, grab bar, lower counters).
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.
Hasen/ Stack RAD is managed by Housing Authority of the City of Perth Amboy.
