Holinko Estates (Family – Moderate Income Housing)

To be income eligible for Holinko Estates, family income must be 80% or less of the median income for the Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, CT HUD Metro FMA Area as published by HUD each year. The 2019 income limits are $60,400 for a family of two; $67,950 for a family of three; $75,000 for a family of four.

Holinko Estates is a state financed housing community for moderate income families. It is a 35 unit apartment complex with 21 two bedroom units, 13 three bedroom units and 1 four bedroom unit located on Zygmunt Drive in Storrs.  Effective May 2019, the base or minimum rent is $620-$650 per month for a two bedroom unit, $685-$715 per month for a three bedroom unit and $785 per month for the four bedroom unit plus utilities. The actual rent you will pay is 30% of the family's adjusted income but never less than the base rent.   The amount of income needed to qualify will vary.  To qualify for a two bedroom unit, a family must have a minimum income of approximately $35,500 to $49,500 depending on the family composition, unreimbursed medical expenses, child care expenses and style of unit (Flat or Townhouse).   Families are chosen by a lottery for each unit that becomes available.

Most of the apartments are townhouse style and some are flats. There is a laundry facility on site and a large playground. Washers and dryers are NOT allowed in the units. Pets are not allowed.
