  • Eligible clients or 2/3 of tenants must be at or below 80% median income and the home must be built before 1978.
  • Owner occupied homes must have a child under the age of six living in the home.

Rental units must be two or more bedrooms and the tenant must be income eligible or the unit must be vacant.
