The insights that you quoted were spot on, except for the new spot condo addition. This program does not permit dissipation of assets to qualify for financial assessment. So someone who has been living in a condo for years, and pays all their bills (including hoa fees , insurance,and taxes) on time, but just doesn’t have sufficient income to meet the standards, cannot take advantage of this program, even though the program is designed to help them.
