Defining Project Eligibility

Project Eligibility establishes whether applicants are eligible to reside in the specific property to which they are applying. Pilot Cove Manor has units designed to serve elderly persons 62 years of age or older. There are 13 units that are fully accessible to individuals 18 years or older with mobility impairments.  Reasonable accommodations may be requested by contacting the main office to further service such a request. The Occupancy Standards listed below take into consideration not only family type, but also family size and what unit sizes are available.  It is possible that a family might be eligible for subsidy under HUD’s requirements but would not be eligible under the unit size requirements of this particular property.

Unit Size and Occupancy Standards

When applying to Pilot Cove Manor, the appropriately sized unit must be in the unit configuration within the development. Units are assigned according to family size and composition. If the appropriate unit size is not available at the time of application, the applicant will be put on a waiting list. To avoid overcrowding, and to be consistent, we have adopted the following occupancy standards:

 Unit Size                                                           Minimum                                           Maximum

Eligibility Screening Criteria for Applicants

  • Criminal Background
    • A criminal background check through Tenant Screening Services will be performed on every applicant.
  • Rental History
    • Through Tenant Screening Services, Pilot Cove Manor will perform a rental history report including eviction reports and previous landlord verification.

  • Other Checks
    • Pilot Cove Manor will also obtain the following reports through Tenant Screening Services, such as SSN# Verification, Employment Verification and Driver’s License History.


For information pertaining to criminal records and/or rental history, please be aware that negative information does not automatically trigger a denial. Pilot Cove Manor will take into consideration the accuracy, nature, relevance and recency of negative information, and any mitigating circumstances. Records that demonstrate that the applicant prevailed against any allegations, or matters settled without either party admitting fault, will not be used to deny the applicant.

Pilot Cove Manor will notify any denied applicant with a written reason for the denial.

Any applicant may appeal denial with a written letter within ten calendar days of the initial letter of denial. After Management receives the letter of appeal, it will be taken into consideration by Management and a response will be provided.
