Subsidized Apartments

Studios, One Bedroom, Two Bedrooms

Our low income apartments are subsidized by Federal government and are designed for older adults and adults with disabilities.

Each subsidized apartment community uses Project Based Section 8 rental assistance. These communities house older adults; 62 years old and older, and adults under 62 with disabilities, based on the community program. The subsidized communities are subject to income limits, each year published by HUD, that describe at or below 50/60% AMI (average median income) for Denver or the local community based on household size. Tenant Rent is calculated based on 30% of a household’s monthly gross income.

Each applicant must complete an application.  Once the application is received, and marked as complete, you will be placed on the waitlist.

Please note that many of our subsidized housing communities are in high demand and have waiting lists or no availability.

All documents are available in other formats by request.
