Rental Housing Descriptions

CSDC rents exclusively to low and very low-income renters. CSDC charges rent that makes the units affordable for low and very low-income renters. To qualify to rent the units, when available, prospective renters must meet income standards, as well as other requirements set by CSDC.
All units are currently occupied. When units become available, CSDC contacts the next person available on the waiting list. If you would like to get on our waiting list for a rental unit, please contact the property manager to receive a waiting list application and submit to us. Submitting this form does not guarantee that you will qualify to rent housing from CSDC. Prospective tenants must meet certain eligibility criteria at the time of application, including, but not limited to, meeting income standards, and undergoing a background check, financial assessment, and reference check.
