Affordable housing offers qualifying applicants the opportunity to live in an apartment community that might otherwise be beyond their financial means. River Place Towers participates in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC), an Affordable Housing Program. This program was created and is administered by the Internal Revenue Service and makes apartments available at affordable rates to renters who meet specific income guidelines. We must verify all income to ensure that applicants meet the Affordable Housing Program’s qualification standards.

Rent at River Place Towers is determined by pre-set income limits for the area, not on individual household income. Applicants who receive housing assistance may qualify for residency.

Applicants for residency must provide the following documentation for approval:

  • A valid photo ID for each person over 18 years old. (Driver’s license, passport, residency card are allowed.)
  • Last year’s tax returns along with W2’s required.
  • Birth certificates for all minors.
  • Valid Social Security card for all members of the household, and/or Tax ID number (ITIN)
  • If applicable, marriage certificate/divorce decree and proof of custody for minor children.
  • Applicants who have Section 8 vouchers will need to supply the supporting documentation from the appropriate housing authority. Their income will also be verified.

All applications are carefully reviewed to ensure that applicants satisfy the following critera for approval.

Employment/Income: The current employer’s name, address, telephone number and fax number must be provided. If applicant has a prior employer during the past year, documentation of the termination is required. Applicant must also bring in the last 3 months worth of current pay stubs or a pay history from their employer for the last 3 months. If receiving Unemployment, last method of income and tax returns for the current year must be provided. Any other methods of income including but not limited to public assistance, child support, alimony, social security, SSI, SSDI, retirement pension, military/veteran benefits must be verified.

Residence History: Positive landlord references and/or mortgage payment history for the previous five years is mandatory. Applicants must provide the landlord’s name, address and telephone number. If the applicant does not have five years of rental history, two personal reference/recommendation letters for each person over the age of 18 in the household are required.

Student Verification: Enrollment will be verified for any applicant age 18 or over who is currently a student or has been within the calendar year. Full time students are not eligible to participate in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program if all occupants of a household are full time students or have been within the present year except in specific circumstances. Ask for details.

Established Credit: Any of the following in the past five years may result in denial of the application: history of delinquency, bankruptcy, unsatisfied judgments, collections or repossessions. If there is no credit history, letters of reference are required.

If the application is denied, the applicant may appeal management’s decision by requesting a conference/review with the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency
