HUD-subsidized multifamily properties represent an important and valuable resource in addressing the nation’s affordable housing needs. The successful delivery of this housing resource to the people who need it depends on effective occupancy policies and procedures. HUD’s occupancy requirements and procedures ensure that eligible applicants are selected for occupancy, that tenants receive the proper level of assistance, and that tenants are treated fairly and consistently. (HUD Book 4350.3)
Staunton Redevelopment and Housing Authority’s Multifamily Program manages The Gardens of Staunton, a family designated property consisting of two separate housing complexes, Elizabeth Miller Gardens and Farrier Court. These properties were developed for the purpose of providing decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing to eligible low income families and individuals, elderly, and handicapped/disabled in our community, and offer 1 to 5 bedroom apartments and townhouses to those eligible per the programmatic and screening requirements described in the Tenant Selection Plan (viewable on this website). This property is a Rental Assistance Demonstration property that has converted from public housing to project-based Section 8 rental assistance. Newly admitted households must fall under the very low income limits for Staunton, Virginia. This property is smoke-free. No smoking of any kind (tobacco, e-cigarettes, vapor devices or any other substance) is permitted in any unit or in any part of the property grounds. Applicants must be willing to refrain from smoking while on the property.
