1. Is this a section 8 property?
No, this is not Section 8 housing. This project is funded through the Section 42 Affordable Housing Tax Credit Program. Different from Section 8, this means that residents are responsible for paying 100% of their rent. Under the Section 42 Program, apartment units will only be rented to those making less than 60% of the area median income, adjusted for family size. Prospective tenant incomes are verified prior to move-in to verify that the income meets program guidelines.
2. How do I qualify?
3. My income varies - how do I know how much I make?

The household income is based on GROSS annual income (before any deductions) earned from all sources including wages, social security payments, public assistance, pensions, annuities, interest income, dividends, stocks, bonds, insurance settlements, recurring gifts from family/friends, sales of artwork, etc. Third-party verification will be required of all income, and copies of tax returns and pay stubs may be required.
