About Huckle Hill Senior Housing

Huckle Hill Senior Housing is a 24 unit affordable housing community in Vernon, Vermont. The community is located in the 0th Congressional District of Vermont.

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.

Low Income Housing Tax Credit

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, monthly rent cannot exceed the Tax Credit maximum rent for the area. Households earning less than 60% of the area median income qualify for units with reduced rent. Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore may be set at levels higher than the area's LIHTC limits.

HOME

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.

Huckle Hill Senior Housing was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program and receives rental subsidies through HUD's Project Based Section 8 program. These programs have different income limits that can lead to apartments in the same property having different income requirements.

You can make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and be eligible for a Project Based Section 8 Program unit. However, you can earn at most 60% of AMI to be eligible for a LIHTC property and many units may be set aside for those with the lowest incomes (down to 15% of AMI). LIHTC properties may also contain some market rate units.

Since Huckle Hill Senior Housing has both programs, the most restrictive of the income limits will apply for each unit. If the entire property is funded by LIHTC, the LIHTC income limit of 60% AMI would be used for all units. Apartments in properties with some units not funded by the LIHTC, but receiving Section 8 assistance, would be open to households making up to 80% AMI. 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.
