Located in downtown White Plains in Westchester County, NY, The Prelude is the first phase of the anticipated neighborhood-wide transformation and comprehensive revitalization of the White Plains Housing Authority's public housing campus. The Phase One Project includes 104 affordable housing units and a community facility that provides onsite support services and programs to promote the economic empowerment, self-sufficiency and financial independence of the residents and White Plains community.

Dave's Thoughts On The Prelude

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 The Prelude 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.
