    Rent for Kavod Affordable Housing is based on a number of factors including income, assets and various eligible medical expenses. The information you provide is then verified by a third party to determine eligibility for the HUD subsidy program and the amount of the rent. Information obtained is strictly confidential and your privacy is carefully guarded.

    No. We pride ourselves on being a community that is open to all, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability, familial status or sexual orientation.

    We are governed by state and federal fair housing law which prohibits us from giving preferential treatment to any individual. Kavod has a statutory preference for applicants displaced due to government action or presidentially declared disasters such as Hurricane Sandy. Existing Kavod residents requesting transfers are also given preference on the waiting list.

    Kavod does have limited on-site parking for residents. There is a waiting list that residents can add their name to upon move in.
