The Longmont Housing Authority has a total of eight properties in the portfolio with the new addition, Fall River Apartments, which opened Fall 2019. Each property has its own set of guidelines and requirements that determine eligibility.
The following guidelines determine an applicant’s eligibility for one of the Longmont Housing Authority’s affordable housing rental units. Interested applicants can contact the property directly with questions or submit an Application. Applicants will be contacted to complete an ‘eligibility packet’ to verify income, assets, and other household information after an apartment becomes available.
Eligible Applicants must earn an annual gross household income equal to or less than the designated Income Limit for the properties listed below AND earn approximately 2 (two) times the monthly rent amount OR participate in a Subsidy Program (i.e. Section 8). Rent amounts vary by property. The 2019 Annual Household Income Limits are listed below.
