Set Aside

The Program

Income Qualified Reserved Units

Canterbury Manor was financed with tax-exempt bonds through the Washington State Housing Finance Commission (WSHFC). In return, Canterbury Manor’s owner, Episcopal Retirement Communities agrees to reserve a percentage of units for low-income households. There are two categories of low-income reserved units for which income eligibility must be verified: Qualified Residents, a household with a combined gross income of no more than 80% of the area median income, and Additionally Qualified Residents, a household with a combined gross income of no more than 50% of the area median income. In the Qualified category, no less than 7 units must be set aside, and in the Additionally Qualified category, no less than 9 units must be reserved. If you feel that you may qualify for one of these programs, please see the Administrator.

Qualification Process

There are two steps to apply for a Set Aside Unit:
  1. Submit required income verification materials prior to moving into Canterbury Manor for eligibility determination, or submit required income verification materials after establishing residency at Canterbury Manor.
  2. Complete Eligibility Verification forms for submittal to WSHFC.

Special Conditions

  • Since there are a limited number of low-income set aside openings, a wait list may be established.
  • Qualifying income levels are determined by the WSHFC and are adjusted on a yearly basis.
