Resident Qualifications

Artspace Tannery Lofts Resident Selection Criteria and Process

Please note, all units at the Tannery are currently occupied with full wait lists so we are not taking applications at the moment. When openings do occur the following Resident Selection Criteria must be followed very carefully for all Artspace Tannery Lofts (ATL) applicants. Fair Housing Laws require Management to use the same criteria for determining eligibility for all applicants. There are no exceptions. The TAC is a 100% Tax Credit property and must follow Section 42 of the IRS Code, along with all Calif. Tax Credit Allocation Committee rules.
The Artspace Tannery Lofts provides 100 units of affordable housing with a tenant selection preference given to Santa Cruz County households who participate in, and are committed to, the creative arts.

Income-Annual gross income cannot exceed the Area Median Income (AMI) for Santa Cruz County per the chart below. The AMI income limits are updated and published yearly by HUD. Management is required to obtain third party income verification on all sources of income. Income calculations are based upon the applicant’s expected annual gross income. For purposes of determining income eligibility, the income of personal care attendants will not be counted as household income but they will be included for the purpose of determining unit size.
