Affordable Housing Program

Affordable Housing Program

The Mera offers both market-rate and rent-restricted apartments in St. Louis Park. 

Please review the Resident Screening Criteria to determine if your household meets the requirements for an Inclusionary Housing Program apartment. Household maximum income limits and all full-time student household limitations apply. The household income is based on gross annual income (before taxes and any deductions) earned from all sources including, but not limited to; employment, social security, unemployment, child support, public assistance, pensions, annuities, interest income, dividends, stocks, bonds, insurance settlements, recurring gifts from family/friends, lottery winnings, etc.

Documentation will be required of all income, assets, and student status for all household members. The property has a minimum household income requirement of 2.5 times the monthly rent amount to qualify. For example, if the monthly rent is $950, the household monthly income needs to be $2,375/month or $28,500/year). Total gross household income must be under the following limits based on household size (see table below). 

PLEASE NOTE: The Mera accepts Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers through the city of St. Louis Park or Hennepin County. Please confirm your maximum payment standard with your housing case worker before applying.
