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.

Very low, low, and moderate income families, elderly persons, and persons with disabilities are eligible to live at this property.

Section 521 USDA Rental Assistance
