SHAG communities offer an array of amenities, the opportunity for friendships and the benefits of having a social network to rely on. Whether you live in a SHAG community in Bellingham, Seattle, Olympia or one of the many locations in between, all of our communities offer apartments at affordable rents for residents with a moderate income. All of our SHAG communities have income and age restrictions that residents must meet in order to qualify for an apartment. The age and income restrictions do differ between communities. Please call our leasing specialists if you have any questions regarding these qualifications.
A single Applicant must be age 61 or older by the end of the current year or age 55 or older and disabled. For an Applicant household of two persons or more, each member of the Applicant's household must be age 55 or older and at least one member of the Applicant's household must be age 61 or older by the end of the current year or disabled.
Victoria Park is intended to serve seniors of all income levels, though 20% of apartments are specifically reserved for those who are living on fixed or limited incomes. Accordingly, for these select units, certain household income qualifications apply at the time of initial occupancy.
Approximately 20% of the apartment units at Victoria Park are set-aside to assist senior individuals and households that satisfy certain lower income thresholds. Subject to availability, a one-person household with an annual income that does not exceed $30,800 or a two-person household with an annual household income that does not exceed $35,200 would be eligible to occupy one of these even more affordable apartment units.
Total annual household income is determined immediately prior to initial occupancy and is based on the anticipated income of all members of the Applicant's household over the next 12 months. Income verification is required for all members of the Applicant's household. Annual recertification of household income is also required but has no impact on future rents or eligibility.
