From 1999–2000, the Housing Authority of Utah County developed Carillon Court in Orem. Carillon Court has sixteen ground-level, handicap-accessible apartments in four-plexes for senior citizens over the age of 62.
The Housing Authority had accumulated several contiguous lots with very old, dilapidated homes. We removed the asbestos from these homes and dismantled or moved the existing structures. Carillon Court has significantly improved the appearance of the local area with attractive landscaping and modern, well-maintained structures.
Close to shopping, community resources and transportation, Carillon Court is home to mature individuals or couples able to live independently.
A number of amenities provide the comfort and convenience these persons need including washer/dryer hook-ups and central air conditioning.
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.
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 Orem but actual income limits may differ for units at Carillon Court.
