About Arch Court

Arch Court is a 31 unit affordable housing community in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The community is located in the 14th Congressional District of Pennsylvania.

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.

HOME Investment Partnerships Program

The HOME Rental Assistance Program provides affordable housing to low and moderate income families. Apartment communities that participate in the program must ensure that 90% of units are occupied by households at or below 60% of the area median income and the remaining 10% of the units are occupied by households at or below 80% of the area median income. Furthermore, if the community has five or more units participating in the HOME program, 20% of those units must be occupied for households at or below 50% of the area median income.

Arch Court 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.

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.
