TAX CREDIT COMMUNITIES
We are really looking forward to welcoming you as one of our newest neighbors at Shipley Park and you probably have a question or two about tax credit properties and the application process.
We’ve got you covered!
What is a Tax Credit Community?
Tax credit communities provide "workforce housing", which simply means housing for residents whose income is within certain percentage of the area median income. If your income falls between the minimum and maximum income restrictions, you may qualify for an apartment at a tax credit community.
What are the income restrictions?
The income restrictions are based on the number of people in the household and the size of the apartment home.
My income falls between the minimum and maximum range.
What do I need to bring with me to apply?
- Government issued ID, SS card, or valid DHS authorization ID and for children: Birth certificate and SS card
- Six consecutive paystubs
- Monthly fixed income (must be within 30-day of application date)
- Six checking statements
- One savings account statement
- Proof of any or all retirement accounts
- $50 non-refundable processing fee
