What is low income housing?

There are several different levels of low-income housing that help provide a roof for individuals and families. From low-income to extreme low-income, we are here to help you.

At Midtown, once qualified, the rent is based off your adjusted monthly income. Most residents of subsidized (rent based on income) housing live on fixed incomes. This subsidy helps keep a roof over your head while living within the confines of a basic cost of living.

Evergreen has a wide variety of housing opportunities. The complex is operated under the New York State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program. What does that mean? Through an applicant screening process, we can provide low-cost housing to households making up to 60% of St Lawrence County’s median income. This income amount changes each year based on many factors. To find out if you qualify, check the qualifications page, or call the office.

We also have a select number of subsidized units available at Evergreen and even participate in the Tenant Based Housing Choice Voucher Program (a subsidy you can use at any approved apartment or house). For more information on renting under these programs, please click below to visit the HUD.gov website.

For questions regarding individual programs feel free to contact our office.
