Income is defined as the gross amount of income anticipated to be received by all members of the household, with some exceptions, during the twelve (12) month period following the certification.
  • Income calculations may include assets or other non-employment income.
  • The leasing staff will verify all sources of income when you apply and will re-certify your income every year while you live here.
