In order to qualify for an apartment, you must know how your income compares to the King County Area Median Income (AMI). Our residents earn between 0-60% of AMI.

The set-aside percentage is effectively your income level, relative to the King County median income. These levels correspond with tiered rent levels in our apartments. Most buildings have apartments reserved for people in the 30%, 40%, 50%, and 60% ranges.

The income listed in the chart is the maximum income you can have for that type of apartment.

Step one: Calculate your gross total household income. Include any child support, TANF, etc.

Step two: Count up all the members of your household.

Step three: Look at the chart below. Start by finding your household size

Step four: The numbers in the column below household size are the maximum household income for that set-aside percentage. Find where your household size meets with your gross income. The percent on the left is your Area Median Income.

Step five: Look at Our Communities page for communities that match your AMI.

Step six: Contact the property manager(s) to ask about the building(s) you are interested in.

How to use the table above:
Find your household size, then find the number that matches your household’s income. The set aside percentage on the far left is where you qualify.

For instance, if Mary is single and has two children, she has a 3-Person household. Her total household income is 32,000 dollars a year. She is in the 30% set-aside percentage. She would qualify for a 30% unit.
