Interview went well yesterday! They also faxed over the income verification form to my boss this morning! I'm hoping that means that they're considering me for an apt.

That's great! That just means, so far, you fit the income requirements. But after they receive all of your verifications, they will complete the credit check. Once credit check is complete, they will call you in to sign some papers to trelease your info to the city. I've been waiting for about 2 weeks so far for a response from the city. But good luck!! If you don;t mind me asking, are you applying for a studio/1bed/2bed? And is it for the low or mid income. That will let you know how many apts are available for each apt criteria..

I applied for a 2 bedroom they said the rent would be $596. If I'm approved! Hoping the process is quick! The man that interviewed me said that the city has been taking up to 6wks to reply back to them. I'm also still waiting to hear from St. Ann's it will be 3 weeks tomorrow.

Okay. I applied for the 2 bedroom also. They only have 6 in our income bracket so hopefully they won't run out by the time we're called. 6 weeks?? They told me 2.. But I'm going off your time calculations because the lady didn't seem to sure when I asked her.. Guess the waiting game continues.. Good luck!

2 bedrooms for $600 bucks is, well, ridiculous. I am all for affordable housing, but geez $600 bucks is not affordable..it's a giveaway.

Giveaway? While I respect your comments, I don't see why you would be bothered by the fact they are "giving away" 6 apartments at such low rent.. Obviously these apartments are for low income "families" and they will be benefiting from living in this apartment building. Hopefully their income will rise as time passes and they will be able to afford to pay a higher rent. Until then, it gives families a chance to have beautiful and cheap housing while improving their life/circumstances.

I am not bothered by the fact other than the whole point of the affordable housing initiative was to target working/middle income residents as they are the ones leaving in droves. If they were simply putting up more low-income/housing projects, then they should have said so. Any new 2 bedroom apt built and rented for a mere $600 is just another low-income style housing project catering to the poor. The community should be targeting the working/middle class, not the poor/destitute. I understand there are apts available for the poor, I just want to be sure that this affordable housing initiative is really about the working/middle class and not just more low-income housing.

They ARE actually targeting the working middle class. That is why there is only 6 apartments for that particular rent. The majority of two bedroom apartments (61 to be exact) are for applicants that are working for $34,000+. Unless you don't consider $34,000+ a middle income family? I am sure 6 "poor/destitute" families that are making $22,000+ are not going to be hazardous to the Via Verde community.
