Waitlist Forecast

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.

Dave's Thoughts On Delaware Tower Apartments

This LIHTC property is among the most common types of affordable rental housing in the United States. The LIHTC program only provides subsidies to the building’s owner at construction. The LIHTC program doesn't provide direct subsidies to the residents, but the owner must set rents affordable to low-income renters in the area. This property does participate in the Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance program and your rent would be subsidized and based on your income. You would not pay more than 30% of your income for rent. To qualify, you must earn 50% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), which you can find on this page’s income chart. LIHTC properties tend to have shorter waiting lists however, since Delaware Tower Apartments has a project-based subsidy, the waiting list is likely much longer than other local LIHTC properties. LIHTC properties nationwide are required to accept housing vouchers however, since this property has a Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance contract, your Section 8 voucher can not be used here. LIHTC properties were first built in the late 1980's and the LIHTC program funds the renovation of older properties. Because they tend to be newer or renovated, these properties are more likely to have larger units, more amenities, and greater tenant service offerings than other affordable housing programs. This property might be right for you if you need help paying your rent and are willing to wait for a longer waiting list.
