Pletcher Terrace

Applicants interested in Pletcher Terrace must meet income qualification standards, citizenship status (for at least one family member / rental rate prorated based upon the number of citizens or legal immigrants present in the home), suitability standards as imposed by HCHA, criminal, gang and drug-related background checks and must not be indebted to another federally assisted housing agency.  Other restrictions may apply.  HCHA imposes a minimum rental rate of $50 and a flat and ceiling rental rate of $538 (efficiency apartments), $633 (one-bedroom apartments), and $788 (two-bedroom apartments) effective March 1, 2024.

The approximate waiting list time for these apartments is six to nine months (subject to change without notice).  Applications are based on a preference system.  Applicants who do not meet one or more preferences may be subjected to much longer or even indefinite waits.
