What are HACB Housing Rents?
Generally, the monthly rent for HACB housing is 30 percent of the family's net income (gross income minus deductions) or a minimum rent of $50 per month, whichever is greater. We also offer the option of paying a flat monthly rent that's based on apartment size and community.
Are There Other Charges?
A $99 security deposit and the first's month rent are due when you sign your lease. The security deposit, less any charges for rent or damages, is refunded to you when you move out.
In some HACB neighborhoods, residents pay their utilities. For these residents, we provide a monthly utility allowance in the form of a rent credit that is subtracted from your rent every month. However, rent credits for utility payments are not available to residents who select the flat rent option.
All HACB units are equipped with kitchen appliances(range and refrigerator). In housing communities where residents do not pay utilities, we assess a monthly charge for the use of additional appliances purchased by residents. These appliances also must be approved by HACB prior to installation.
