What type of housing is King’s Grant?  Is it low-income housing?

King’s Grant is an affordable/subsidized housing community for families.  The term “subsidized housing” means that the rent is based on income.  A resident of the community pays approximately 30% of their income as rent.

Who pays the remainder of rent?

The remainder of the rent is paid in the form of a subsidy.  If a resident qualifies for a subsidy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a U.S. government agency, will pay the remainder of the rent.

How is rent calculated?

Resident rent is based on approximately 30% of income.  A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your gross annual income and divide it by 12 months.  This will give you an estimate of what your monthly rent could be.

What does the rent include?

Monthly rental of the apartment, as well as hot water, & trash. A utility allowance of $ 68.00 for a one-bedroom apartment and $93 for a two-bedroom apartment.  This amount is deducted from the resident’s rent payment (meant to help the resident pay the utility bills).  The allowance amount is based on average usage for the apartment and may change annually.  Residents will still receive one electric utility bill but the allowance is intended to help pay for these bills.  Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the South County Community Action Program.
