Through Project-Based Section 8 Rental Assistance, HUD assists more than 1.2 million extremely low-, low- and very low-income families in obtaining decent, safe, and sanitary housing. HUD renews Section 8 project-based Housing Assistance Payments (“HAP”) contracts with owners of multifamily rental housing. The project-based rental assistance makes up the difference between what an extremely low-, low-, or very low-income household can afford and the approved rent for an adequate housing unit in a multifamily project. Eligible tenants must pay the highest of 30 percent of adjusted income, 10 percent of gross income, or the portion of welfare assistance designated for housing or the minimum rent established by HUD. Because of the great need for subsidized housing, these properties often have long waiting lists.
Fletcher Gardens serves the elderly (62 years and older) with 93 units in an 8-story high-rise building.
Residents pay approximately 30% of household income towards rent. Seniors cannot make more than 80% of the area median income to be eligible for assistance. Approximate waiting list time is a year or longer; we are unable to predict as it is purely based on availability of units.
The Residences at Willow Park is a 68-unit subsidized community. Two and 3 bedroom units have the amenities of washer/dryer hook-ups, air conditioning, self-cleaning ovens, and a playground and basketball court.
