Be aware that most listings for affordable housing have waiting lists. We encourage you to apply to as many as possible so we hope you will check the website once a month for new listings. To obtain an application contact the property manager or go to the property management office.

Rent: $5832 per month

Affordability requirements: Individuals renting a single room occupancy cannot exceed 30% of the Area Median Income, (AMI)*, which is currently $28,800 per year
All 8 units share a common kitchen, common spaces and bathrooms. The property was leased through a master lease, where the lessee was responsible for all utilities and regular maintenance. NCLT has been responsible for capital improvements, insurance, debt service and property taxes.
Group or program scenarios:
NCLT requires that the new organization provide oversight, if necessary, such as a resident manager or case
management services, and either contract with a property management firm, or manage the property itself (i.e.
perform regular maintenance and emergency repairs, keep the utilities paid and connected, collect rents, fill
vacancies as they occur, follow through Shelter Plus Care and Berkeley Housing Authority
paperwork/inspections, if there are Shelter Plus Care and BHA tenants, etc.)
