Rental Assistance Payments (RAP)

Since this property has received funding through the HUD Section 236 program and the Rental Assistance Program (RAP), a tenant who earns 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less qualifies for rental assistance. The rental assistance limits the tenant rent contribution to the greater of 10% of their gross income, 20% of their adjusted income, or a designated portion of welfare assistance. If a tenant's income is above the 50% AMI level, they may still qualify to live here but not benefit from the rent subsidy.

Michelangelo Apartments receives rental subsidies through HUD's Project Based Section 8 program for some or all of its apartments. Some units may be designated as market rate housing.

You can make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and be eligible for a Project Based Section 8 Program unit. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.
