Additional Suite Information

Rent in seniors self-contained apartments is based on a rent-geared to income (RGI) formula. This means that rent is based on a percentage of the tenant"s adjusted income. In the case of a couple or two persons sharing a seniors self-contained apartment, the rent is based on the combined incomes of both. Rent is calculated at 30% of total gross income from all sources with a maximum rate approved by the Governing Board (subject to review).
