Properties for Individuals and Families

These properties have open eligibility in that they do not restrict occupancy to a particular age population (seniors) or disabled households. Most properties will require that the head of household be over the age of 18 or an emancipated minor. The number of persons in an apartment will be restricted to bedroom size, in most cases, and a few properties have set-aside certain units within their property for seniors and/or persons with a disability. Single persons, roommates, couples and families are welcome at these properties- unless otherwise indicated on the listing.

Please call the MAIN CONTACT on each property listing for specific program or property eligibility.

    Program Type(s)

    Properties that Accept Housing Authority provided Tenant-Based Vouchers

    Properties that accept Tenant-Based Housing Authority Provided Vouchers

    Properties in this category are private or publically owned properties that accept applicants with a Housing Authority provided Housing Choice Section 8 voucher or certificate. You must first have applied and received a voucher through your local housing authority program. You should contact your city or county Housing Authority directly for an application for their voucher/subsidy program.

    All properties listed on our site that do not have Project-Based subsidy through another government program will take a Section 8 voucher. Vouchers are portable and transferrable because they stay with the household, not the property, once you move out of the property. Then you can take your voucher to a property that accepts them and receive a subsidized rent.

    With a voucher or certificate, you will generally only pay 30% of your monthly household income for rent. Maximum rent amounts that the owner can charge are designated by the Federal Government and income limits apply. If an owner wishes to charge more than the maximum rent authorized by the housing authority, the tenant may be asked to pay all or part of the difference.

    Please call the MAIN CONTACT on each property listing for specific program or property eligibility.

    Other Non-subsidized Affordable apartments

    Properties that offer Affordable, Non-Subsidized Apartments

    Properties in this category restrict rents to below-market for qualified low-income applicants. These properties do not have Project-Based subsidy built-in, so your rent will not be subsidized unless you have a Housing Authority Section 8 voucher.

    We list properties funded under Washington State Housing Tax Credit program; Washington State Tax-Exempt Bond program; Housing Authority owned properties, HUD Non-subsidized programs such as the 202 and 236 program, and privately owned non-government funded properties that accept Section 8 vouchers. Income limits apply when a property is funded under a federal or state low income program.

    The rent and unit you will qualify for at these properties may depend upon your annual income level. These are called income set-asides. The property may have rent ranges, lowest to highest, but a family in a higher income level may not qualify for the lowest rent level. There may also be some other set asides at the property called occupancy set asides, such as for large families, disabled households or farm labor qualifiers. Properties with these types of set asides would give preference for rents and units to households that qualify.

    Waiting lists can also vary greatly at these properties. There are often much longer wait times for the lower rent amounts and may be no wait at all for the higher rent amounts at the property. In addition, often your annual income level may determine which unit you will qualify for. This can also effect the time you may need to wait for a unit to become available.

    Please call the MAIN CONTACT on each property listing for specific program or property eligibility.

    Background Screening Information

    Accepting Comprehensive Re-usable Tenant Screening Reports
    Not Accepting Comprehensive Re-usable Tenant Screening Reports

    Screening Information and Cost (If Any):

    $24 Application Fee per Applicant - includes Credit and Rental History checks

    A comprehensive re-usable tenant screening report (portable report) means a tenant screening report, prepared by a consumer reporting agency at the direction of and paid for by the prospective tenant, and made available directly to a prospective landlord at no charge. Reports are re-usable for 30 days for multiple landlords.

    In accordance with Senate Bill 6413 effective 6/9/2016, landlords have the option to either accept or not accept portable reports, and the landlords decision must be included in the landlord’s posted rental criteria.

    If the landlord indicates its willingness to accept a comprehensive reusable tenant (portable) screening report, the landlord may access the landlord's own tenant screening report, regarding a prospective tenant, as long as the prospective tenant is not charged for the landlord's own tenant screening report.
