Thomas Patrick Maroney Unity Apartments is a new housing facility located at 1004 Lewis Street in Charleston, for persons with disabilities. Occupancy of this new facility is estimated to occur in the month of March, 2015. There will be 13 one bedroom accessible apartments, which will include kitchens and bathrooms designed to accommodate wheelchairs.
To qualify for admission, occupants must be 18 years of age or older with an annual income of no greater than $19,550 for one person or $22,350 for two people (income guidelines are published yearly in the Federal Register). Residents must be able to benefit from the designed features of the units and the intended purpose which is to provide disabled persons with independent living accommodations. Thomas Patrick Maroney Unity Apartments is a federally-funded project which provides rental assistance; therefore, the amount of rent to be paid is based on income (no more than 30 percent of the adjusted income for rent and utilities). The Department of Housing and Urban Development will subsidize the balance.
