Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a USDA 515 and LIHTC property that might have rental assistance for some or all units, there might be seperate or split waiting lists for rental assistance and non-rental assistance units. In this case, the rental assistance waiting list can be much longer than properties without rental assistance. The non-rental assistance units waiting list is likely much shorter or it may not have a waiting list at all. 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 High Desert Commons

Because it participates in the USDA Section 515 Rural Rental Housing program, High Desert Commons is likely located in a rural community and may be one of only a few rental housing choices in the area. To qualify for residency in a Section 515 property, you must earn 80% or less of Area Median Income (AMI). However, this property also participates in the LIHTC program. 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 also participates in USDA's Section 521 Rental Assistance program, residents who earn 50% of the AMI or less may qualify for a subsidy that limits your rent payment to 30% of your income. The Section 521 subsidy may be attached to all or just some of the units. Since this property has benefited from the LIHTC program, it is likely to be in better condition and offer more amenities than other Section 515 properties. These properties are almost always owned and managed by private/corporate owners or nonprofits. If you live in a rural area and need help paying your rent, this property may be good for you.
