What type of housing is River City Residency Club (RCRC)? Is it low-income housing?
RCRC is a HUD 202 subsidized housing community for those with psychiatric disabilities. The term “subsidized housing” means HUD provides rental Subsidies to the project owner in an amount equal to the difference between the Rent (the “Contract Rent”) for a particular assisted unit and the HUD required rental contribution for eligible tenants (tenant’s portion of rent is based on 30% of the annual adjusted income).
Who pays the remainder of rent?
The remainder of the rent is paid in the form of a rental subsidy. If a resident qualifies for a subsidy (restrictions apply), 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 annual 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.

Monthly rental of the apartment and all utilities
