About the Middle-Income Rental Program Waiting Pool

Through the Middle-Income Rental Program, eligible applicants will be identified for affordable, middle-income rental apartments. Middle-income Rental Program apartments are located throughout the city in developments that are privately owned and managed.

CDD's Housing division manages this waiting pool of applicants to assist owners in making apartments available to eligible households. CDD determines eligibility and refers eligible applicants to property owners or managers with available apartments for their approval. Eligible applicants who are approved by the property owner/manager will have an opportunity to view the apartments before accepting it.

Households interested in being added to the Middle-Income Rental Program waiting pool must complete the Preliminary Application and include all of the required documentation.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Eligibility and Rents

The review of the Final Application determines an applicant’s eligibility for the program. Eligible applicants must have incomes between 80% to 120% of Area Median Income (AMI), and meet asset guidelines as outlined in the application guidelines.

Depending on the middle-income units available, rents will either be calculated at 30 percent of the household's gross monthly income or a set, affordable rent. Final rents will be determined after an allowance for utilities paid by the tenant is deducted from these amounts. For tenants who require a parking space, there will be an additional fee. Tenants’ incomes are recertified annually, and rents are adjusted annually based on that recertification. Tenants enter into lease agreements directly with the property manager or owner.
