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 community are based on tenant incomes. Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance 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.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.

Pittsburgh HUD Rental Assistance Income Qualifications

You can usually make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) to be eligible for a HUD-Assisted Housing unit, but income qualification tiers for this community may be different due to various policies.

The New Riverview receives rental subsidies through HUD-Assisted Housing for some or all of its apartments. Some units may be designated as market rate housing. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.
