For the Central Ala Moana There will be 3 main AMI (Area Median Income) groups that are very important. This is one of the first projects to ever have a minimum income level in order to purchase an affordable unit. For The Central Ala Moana that minimum AMI will be 80%. There will also be a maximum AMI going up to 140%.
Below is The Central Ala Moana Price Sheet showing both Market (in grey) and Affordable units (colored with green being the 80-100%, blue being the 101-120%, and the yellow being 121-140%). HHFDC will determine the order and if there are not enough applicants in the 80-100% AMI group, then the 101-120% AMI group may select from the lower AMI group. Unfortunately you cannot choose a unit above your AMI group.
Depending on what type of unit you are looking for, there are certain groups that would allow for a greater selection. I would highly advise you take the time to chat with a lender as they can help think of creative ways to qualify you and to see what you would pre-qualify for. Feel to ask me as many as questions that come to mind. We have until January 14, 2019 to complete the application so we can definitely plan out what would work for you and go over the floor plans and see the model showroom.
