Your Questions About Apartments For Low Income

Sharon asks…

Low income apartments.. mom.. what should I do?

I’ve been accepted for low income apartments. The thing is if I move I won’t be able to make the money I do anymore. And after reviewing everything there are no stores in the area (I don’t have a car, and the one I was using is junk now), there are no jobs in the area, and I won’t have any help with finding a sitter. For me to work I’d have to take a bus thirty or forty minutes away anyway!

I have the money to move in but I don’t know how I’ll pay the electricity or rent and I don’t qualify for cash assistance. (I’ve already tried, they said I would have to start working in a week and a half. I don’t have a sitter. My family will be 45 minutes away.)

Should I take the chance and move in?? Or should I just stay where I am and seriously focus on getting a car, my certificate in phlebotomy, and then move closer to where my family is so I can have a sitter?
Note: They said I could move in by July 1st.

I was planning on getting my certificate regardless! I just don’ t know how I would do it living there.

YES. Make your own money. Support yourself.

“I was planning on getting my certificate regardless! I just don’ t know how I would do it living there.”

You can’t given what you’ve told us. No transportation and no child care = no certificate.

Lizzie asks…

What are low income apartments?

Is it section 8 because I am not on section 8? How much do you need to make to apply for them??
Im in Atlanta if it helps
Thanks and no one is trying to sit down all day! Don’t stereotype everyone who ask for help. Ppl do fall on hard times, but that doesn’t mean they plan on staying

Administrator answers:

Atlanta has a lot of projects, you likely live in one of those. Section 8 is a voucher, you would know if you had it.

Administrator answers:

First, take your phone number off this page. You’re going to get a lot of calls you don’t want. Second, contact your local housing authority. In virginia, ours are run county-by-county. Sounds like you’re in texas, not sure what the jurisdictional breakdown is there. Another good start would be to contact a local church; they often have phone numbers/contacts for affordable housing providers.

Sandy asks…

How to apply for low income apartment?

I want to apply for low income apartment or studio. How/where do I get the paper to apply? Is there a website for this? I live in California, San Jose/ Santa Clara/ Cupertino/ Campbell. Anywhere around there have low income housing? Please help! Thank you!

Administrator answers:

Those are all Santa Clara county, so you only need to apply with the housing authority there, one application covers the entire county. Unless you are a disabled senior citizen expect to be waiting for a very long time. You will not be able to live in Cupertino, but the others have low income housing.

Maria asks…

What do they check for when they do a apartment inspection for low-income apartment?

I live in a low-income apartment and I want to know what they check for and do they check closets for people living there?

Administrator answers:

It’s been my experience that they will check your smoke alarm, maybe the air filter, dripping faucets, running toilet, any evidence of water leaks, unauthorized pets, rodent infestation, and mildew around windows. Sometimes they will look in your closets and do whatever they can to invade your privacy, insult you dignity, and make you feel like crap.
