Multifamily Apartments & Townhouses

Staunton Redevelopment and Housing Authority’s Multifamily Program manages two separate housing complexes: Elizabeth Miller Gardens and Farrier Court.  These properties were developed to provide safe, sanitary, and affordable housing to eligible low income families and individuals in our community.

Our properties consist of apartments and townhomes with 1-5 bedrooms.  These units are available to individuals and families who meet specific screening requirements.

Under the Rental Housing Integrity Improvement Project (RHIIP) initiative, HUD is responsible for ensuring that the proper subsidy is provided to households through its rental assistance programs. A family’s anticipated gross income determines not only eligibility for assistance, but also determines the rent a family will pay and the subsidy required. The anticipated income, subject to exclusions and deductions the family will receive during the next twelve (12) months, is used to determine the family’s rent.

Project-Based Section 8 Rent Formula: The rent a family will pay is the highest of the following amounts:

  • 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income

  • 10% of the family’s monthly income

  • Welfare rent or welfare payment from agency to assist family in paying housing costs.


  • $25.00 Minimum Rent

Income eligibility must be determined prior to approving applicants for tenancy.
