Affordable and Subsidized Housing

It is important to understand the differences between market rate , where the landlord or seller charges what the market will bear, affordable housing, where rent is based on income and assets, and subsidized, which is available only to low income people and is subsidized by government funding.

Affordable Housing

Each municipal government has an office for affordable housing, which maintains a list of units in the community designated affordable. This office receives applications and maintains waiting lists for units which are for sale or rental. Some senior communities may include some units designated as affordable. Most communities have an on-site housing manager. Some limited social services may be offered, but residents are expected to be independent. 

Subsidized Housing

Rental housing for low income people, subsidized by the Federal Government (HUD). There is usually a substantial waiting list.
