Income Limits & Rent

To be placed on our waiting list for a Tel Haven Apartment, an application and financial statement must be completed and approved by Tel Hai.

The waiting list is divided into three segments by income level, including ‘very low,’ ‘low,’ and ‘moderate.’ The date of application establishes priority for residence within these categories. Annual earnings cannot exceed defined amounts that change annually, and maintaining priority listing criteria is in accordance with governmental directives and guidelines.

Rent is calculated at 30% of the resident’s adjusted monthly income. Allowable medical expenses are used as deductible expenses to determine adjusted income. After monthly rent is determined, a $30 monthly utility allowance is deducted.
