Q: Is Medina Townhomes A Section 8 Property?
A: No, this is not Section 8 housing. This project is funded through the Section 42 Affordable Housing Tax Credit Program. Different from Section 8, that means residents are responsible for paying 100% of their rent. Under the Section 42 program, townhome units will only be rented to families making less than 60% of the area median income, adjusted for family size. For this specific property a family of four cannot make more than approximately $50,000 per year combined income. Prospective tenant incomes are verified prior to move-in.
