rental housing

Santa Fe has over 2,000 units of affordably priced rental housing serving families, the elderly and those with disabilities. The projects are funded through low?income housing tax credits (LIHTC), various HUD housing programs, (Section 8, Section 811, Section 202) and public housing funds. Current production of multi?family units in Santa Fe has continued, despite the recession, because of innovative uses of development funds and productive partnerships between governmental, private-sector and nonprofit organizations.

Low Income Housing Tax Credit Properties (LIHTC). By far the most widely used funding source to provide multi?family housing, LIHTC?funded projects provide 1760 units of housing in Santa Fe. The properties are priced affordably to residents earning from 40 – 80 percent of the AMI, with most projects serving residents earning 60 – 65 percent of the AMI. Several properties use LIHTC funds in conjunction with other funding sources to serve a diversity of needs and income levels. Other sources include: the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund, HOME funds, CDBG, Section 202, and private funds.

Other Rental Assistance. Another form of rental assistance is provided through HUD’s Shelter Plus Care program. Tenants must have verified disabilities and earn no more than 30% AMI for their household. (City AMI Table) Shelter Plus Care rental vouchers are administered either on a project basis or directly to tenants to use at privately?owned scattered sites.

Life Link uses vouchers to subsidize rents at La Luz, as well as administering them to its clients who are able to live off site. For several years, the Housing Trust has administered vouchers to people living with AIDS and allocates project?based vouchers for its newly constructed subsidized rental projects, the Village Sage and the Stagecoach Apartments. Another Shelter Plus Care grant, initiated in 2012, is administered by St. Elizabeth at its Siringo Senior Housing site.

Contact Life Link or the Housing Trust for information about applying for assistance and/or eligibility.
