Income Eligibility

Your gross income is an essential factor in your qualification for residency in any of our communities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sets the income limits. The established maximum annual income limits (per household) are:

  • HUD (all except Starner Hill) one person $40,650, two persons $46,450
  • HUD (Starner Hill) one person $28,200, two persons $32,200
  • Tax Credit one person $48,780, two persons $55,740

*Tax Credit Properties also have a minimum annual income to qualify. Our Tax Credit Communities are Everall Gardens, Kessler Park, St. Mark’s Apartments and Village Crossroads I. Housing Choice Vouchers are also accepted.

In HUD properties, residents pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent. In tax credit properties, residents’ rent is based on the apartment type regardless of individual income.

Age Eligibility

An applicant must be 62 years old or older at the time of application to apply to all but four of Catholic Charities’ senior communities. The four buildings that accept non-elderly disabled persons* are Basilica Place, Coursey Station, Starner Hill and St. Charles House.

*non-elderly disabled persons are persons that qualify for apartments which are specifically designed and designated for persons under the age of 62 years old with a physical disability that results in a functional limitation in access and use of the apartment.
