Interested in learning more about making our home yours? Here’s what you need to know:

Our complex is operated under the New York State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program and requires applicant screening to ensure that households living in the apartments meet program criteria. The income guidelines established for admission are as follows; applicant’s total household incomes must be at or below this income for admission:

Number of Persons in Household 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Gross Annual Income Threshold $35,100 $40,080 $45,120 $50,100 $54,120 $58,140 $62,160 $66,180

Upon receipt of your completed application, your name will be placed on a waiting list. Vacancies will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis using the applications receipt date and time. Verification of household eligibility will be performed once your name is selected from the waiting list for review. To process your application at that time, we will request that you submit copies of the following household information:

  • Original birth certificates of all household members
  • Original social security cards of all household members
  • Household income verification (i.e. last four paychecks, Social Security/SSI reward letters, etc.)
  • Household assets (i.e. last six months statements of checking, savings, or investment accounts, most recent statement of Direct Express or work bank card, etc.)

Our screening process includes verifying US citizenship or permanent residency in the United States. We also perform credit and criminal background screening and determination of student status of all adult household members. Because of our participation in the LIHTC program we are not able to admit households of full-time students unless all household members meet certain exceptions.
