Residential Eligibility Requirements

To qualify to apply for a TELACU Property Management property, you need to meet the eligibility requirements.

Del Mar II, Faith Housing New Hope Apartments, Knob Hill, Pacific Housing, Rosa Parks Villas, Santa Monica New Hope Courtyard Apartments, San Pedro New Hope Courtyard Apartments and Silver Lake New Hope Apartments

Head of household must be at least 18 years-old and diagnosed with HIV/AIDS at time application is submitted. Household income must not exceed 50% of the HUD annual income limits. In addition, this project assigns preferences to applicants who meet certain criteria and is a method intended to provide housing opportunities to applicants based upon household circumstances. Applicants with preferences are selected from the waiting list and receive an opportunity for an available unit earlier than those who do not have a preference.  Preferences affect only the order of applicants on the waiting list.  They do not make anyone eligible who was not otherwise eligible, and they do not change an owner’s right to adopt and enforce tenant screening criteria.

The project has decided to assign various importances to their owner-adopted preferences. Therefore, a ranking, rating, and combination of preference circumstances are identified and will be consistently used.  In addition, the project has chosen to adopt a policy that provides top priority to an applicant who qualifies for the most preference categories (also known as combining preferences).

The owner-adopted preferences below are the following in order of ranking from 1 to 3:

  1. Household is currently living in transitional housing or leaving home without an alternative situation;
  2. Household consists of a single parent with dependent child or children; and,
  3. Household is living over-crowded (more than two persons per bedroom) or substandard conditions. HUD defines substandard housing if it is dilapidated. A housing unit is dilapidated if it:
    • does not provide safe and adequate shelter;
    • endangers the health, safety or well-being of a family in its present condition;
    • has one or more critical defects; OR
    • has a combination of intermediate defects in sufficient number or extent to require considerable repair or rebuilding. (The defects may involve original construction, or they may result from continued neglect or lack of repair or rebuilding).
    • does not have operable indoor plumbing;
    • does not have a usable flush toilet, bathtub or shower inside the unit for the exclusive use of a family;
    • does not have electricity or has inadequate or unsafe electrical service;
    • does not have safe or adequate source of heat;
