NEIGHBORHOOD

A quick six miles directly south of Downtown Boston lies the close-knit community of Saintt. Marks, tightly packed with multi-family, triple-decker houses for rent. Workers reach the center of the city in less than 30 minutes by driving up Interstate 93 or taking the MBTA red line from Shawmut station. Dorchester Avenue runs through the heart of St. Marks, giving residents an active commercial district with homes lining the side streets.

Franklin Park, just two miles west of St. Marks, provides a large green space filled with wetlands, fields, and ponds. This is the location of the Franklin Park Zoo, the Franklin Park Playstead, and the William J. Devine Golf Course. Head a couple of blocks east to the parks along the Neponset River, including the dog-friendly Victory Road Park or to Tenean Beach, which offers a boardwalk, picnic areas, and a playground. During the summer and fall, head to the nearby Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers Market to pick up some local New England produce.

INCOME & ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONS / FAQ

How is my income calculated?
The household income is calculated based on the gross income of the household. Commissions, bonuses and other regular payments are included and considered part of the gross annual income.

I didn’t file taxes last year. What do I need to provide?
Individuals or households who did not file taxes must provide a verification of non-filing from the IRS in lieu of a tax return. To obtain the verification of non-filing, applicants should fill out a 4506-T form and file it by mail or hand-deliver it to an IRS office. The IRS will mail back a letter of verification which must be provided with the income materials given to the marketing agent. See the IRS website to download a 4506-T form.

I received a pay raise between the time I picked up an application and the time I was income certified and now I am over the income limit. What do I do?
Income is calculated at the time the applicant submits an application to the lottery agent, not during the application process or at the time of the lottery. Eligibility must be maintained from the time of the application pick up until after income certification verification. Unfortunately, if an applicant’s income is over the income limit, the applicant will not be eligible for the particular unit for which they applied.

I have children in school/college, how does this affect my application?
Income from children in school/college under the age of 18 is not considered towards the income of the household.

Are student loans considered income?
Student loans are not considered income and may not be used to income qualify.

I am separated from my spouse, does this affect my application?
Legally married couples shall both be considered part of the household, even if separated. Applicants with additional questions regarding this policy must speak with the marketing agent/seller.

I would like to appeal a decision regarding income eligibility. How do I appeal? Applicants who are rejected will receive a rejection letter in writing and will be given 7 days for the opportunity to appeal the decision.
