Chelmsford Woods Phase 2 Lottery

Chelmsford Woods Residences II is the second phase of an affordable apartment community that will consist of one-, two- and three-bedroom units and three bedroom townhomes, some with a private garage.  The Chelmsford Woods Residences campus will be smoke-free and pets will be allowed (one pet per apartment with a 25-pound weight limit for dogs.) The apartments feature fully-applianced galley style kitchens with breakfast bar, easy to maintain laminate wood flooring, large closets and central air conditioning. There is a clubhouse with a wide range of amenities.

This new phase consists of three buildings and 58 units of which there are 16 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedroom units and 12 three-bedroom units.   While all of the units are considered affordable, they are classified into three categories:

  • 4 of the one-bedroom units will be set aside for a Community Based Housing (CBH) program and will receive rental assistance from either a project-based section 8 subsidy (2 units) or a project-based section 811 subsidy (2 units);
  • 4 of the units will receive a project-based subsidy (rental assistance) through the Federal Section 8 Program; and
  • 50 units are unsubsidized and residents will pay the full amount of affordable rent.

This property was developed using Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), which restricts income of residents and provides affordable rents. Applicants who already have a Section 8 Voucher or MRVP can use it to rent an unsubsidized unit subject to review by the issuing authority.  Residents will have to pay for their electricity, heat, phone, internet and cable TV.  A utility allowance is provided for the electric and heat.
