Housing

Since there is typically a long waiting list for rent geared to income housing you should fill out an application as soon as possible – wait times can be as long as 7 years for some units.  You can expect to pay 25% of your income in a rent geared to income apartment.  Affordable apartments are usually 20% less than the average rent for a similar unit.
