About Roanoke Commons

Roanoke Commons is a garden-style apartment complex for seniors in southeast Raleigh. The complex includes a community building with laundry facilities, partial kitchen, TV lounge, handicap accessible units, and meeting space for resident activities.

Supportive Services through Resources for Seniors of Wake County are available for individuals with special needs in addition to regularly programmed activities for all residents.

Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly

Since this property was built using funding through HUD's Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program, residency is restricted to persons who earn 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less. Like other rental assistance programs like Section 8, resident's rents are based on their income and the tenant contribution is set at 30% of the tenants income.

Section 223

Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance

Since this property has a Project-Based Section 8 contract with HUD, some or all of the rents at this property are based on tenant incomes. Tenants will make a monthly contribution toward rent equal to 30% of their adjusted income. There is a minimum tenant contribution of $25 for all rents at this property regardless of tenant income.

Roanoke Commons receives rental subsidies through HUD-Assisted Housing 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 HUD-Assisted Housing unit. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.

Figuring out income and rent limits for affordable housing can be complex when more than one federal program is involved. To know for sure if you qualify, you must contact the property directly. The amounts provided here should only be used as a basic guide.

Roanoke Commons is managed by Community Management Corporation.
