Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.
Village Court Apartments Associates, L.P., is a limited partnership with Creating Affordable Housing, Inc. as the general partner and Peoples Bank and A.C.N.B. Corporation as the limited partners. This partnership was formed in 2002 for the purpose of developing Village Court Apartments as a community affordable for low- and moderate-income families. York Housing Authority serves as the Management Agent for this community.
The development is located seven miles north of York in Dover Township, York County. Specifically, it is west of Carlisle Avenue (Route 74) off of Oakland Road.
Village Court consists of 60 townhome units for families, 46 of which have two (2) bedrooms (1,100 sq. feet) and 20 of which will have three (3) bedrooms (1,330 sq. feet). Some townhomes are one story construction for families with a member of the household requiring physical accommodations. The development includes a large community building with on site management. Other amenities include one and one-half baths, off-street parking, 24 hour emergency maintenance, supportive services, and community room with computer lab.

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.
This project has received some funding from a participating jurisdiction (local or state government agency) through the HUD HOME Investments Partnerships Program (HOME). In projects with five or more HOME-assisted units, at least 20% of these units must be occupied by families earning 50% or less of area median income (AMI). All other HOME-assisted units must be occupied by families earning 80% or less of AMI, but in practice most are reserved for families earning 60% or less AMI. Maximum monthly rent is capped with a Low HOME Rent for <50% AMI units and a High HOME Rent for the remaining HOME-assisted units. Contact the property directly for the specific dollar amount of these rent caps.
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 Dover but actual income limits may differ for units at Village Court.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|
|Very Low Income (50%)||$26,850||$30,650||$34,500||$38,300||$41,400||$44,450||$47,500||$50,600|
|Low Income (60%)||$32,220||$36,780||$41,400||$45,960||$49,680||$53,340||$57,000||$60,720|
Village Court was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. In addition to providing apartments for low-income households, this property could include some market rate units. Households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) qualify for targeted rental units in LIHTC financed housing. This property may also designate units for renters with even lower incomes, from 60% of AMI down to 30% AMI. It is even possible that all units have been set aside for those with extremely low incomes (as low as 15% of AMI). This means that the same size unit can rent for different amounts based on the income of the renter.
Figuring out income and rent limits for affordable housing can be complex especially 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.
Village Court is managed by Housing Authority of the City of York.
