Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a Section 811 property and includes rental assistance, it will tend to have a longer waiting list. Sometimes these waiting lists can be months or years long and may or may not be accepting new applicants. 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.

Dave's Thoughts On Hopkins Independent Living

As a Section 811 property, this apartment community only allows persons with disabilities. A person of any age with a disability, and an income at or below 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI), qualifies for residency. In addition, Hopkins Independent Living is highly desirable because it offers rent subsidies and will tend to have a longer waiting list. This program was first introduced in 1990, so these younger properties are generally in good condition. Since the property includes a rent subsidy, you would pay no more than 30% of your income toward rent. Most of these properties include a resident services coordinator that organizes and facilitates services like healthcare management, transportation, and social activities. If you are a low-income person with a disability and need some help maintaining independent living, this property might be right for you. Since this property participates in the HUD 811 program and has a property based subsidy, if you have a Section 8 voucher, you would have to give up your voucher to move in.
