To Qualify

CARE's rental rates are structured to provide you with high quality living at affordable prices. To qualify for CARE Housing, you must meet certain criteria:

  • One adult in the household must be working at least 20 hours per week. Exceptions include persons with disabilities or senior citizens that are receiving income from other sources.
  • Dependents must be living in the household at least 50% of the time. Exceptions include persons with disabilities or senior citizens that do not have dependents.
  • Meet income requirements.
  • Re-certify housing eligibility annually.

CARE Housing works entirely from a waiting list. To be added to the waiting list, please submit an application.

Once an apartment has been offered and accepted, CARE Housing requires these items to reserve the unit:

  • $35 Background/Credit Check fee (in certified funds) for each adult applicant.
