Workforce Housing Preference

As part of the market rate lease-up, a workforce housing preference will be extended to households whose income is at or below 120% of the area median income (AMI). The Workforce Housing Preference provides eligible households with leasing priority over non-workforce applicants until our allotment of workforce apartments has been leased. In the event that there is no availability for immediate workforce housing, your information will be added to a waitlist so you can be contacted as soon as an apartment becomes available.
