Chambers Court in the town of Ulster features 72 cottage-style, single-story apartments. One of the first affordable senior housing developments in New York State to offer adaptable/accessible housing for seniors, its popularity was proven when it was fully occupied less than two months after completion.
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.
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 Kingston but actual income limits may differ for units at Chambers Court.
