Please remember

We want to make sure that anyone who would like to be considered as an applicant for an apartment understands that determination of eligibility takes some time. The Village of St. John will in no way guarantee housing to candidates in advance of or during the application and certification processes.

Even determination of eligibility – based on income limits established by the Delaware State Housing Authority – cannot guarantee housing for any applicant.  Potential residents also must meet facility requirements, as well as agree to and maintain compliance with rules and regulations of the facility itself.

As with other affordable housing in Wilmington, our site may have a considerable waiting list – and being added to the Village of St. John waiting list is no guarantee of when or if housing might become available. Being added to the waiting list itself is no guarantee of being placed in an apartment at the Village of St. John.

The Village of St. John contracted with East Coast Management who will review your application and determine your eligibility. Until the Village of St. John opens, the applications will be handled by East Coast Management.

Please be advised that the Village of St. John provides residents with internet-based live television streaming capabilities in their units, instead of a traditional cable-based television option.  Traditional cable, fiber-optic and dish television options such as Comcast/Xfinity, Verizon Fios, Dish and DirecTV are not currently available at the Village of St. John.

Instead, Village of St. John residents may arrange live television in their unit through an internet-based live television steaming device such as Smart TV, Amazon Firestick or Roku Box.  Combined with a wireless internet package and subscription to a live television streaming service – for example, Sling TV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV and DirecTV Now – the television streaming device will provide residents with live television in their units.  The responsibility and cost of purchasing an internet-based live television streaming device and subscriptions to a wireless internet package and live television streaming service rests solely with the resident.

As a resident of the Village of St. John, only one vehicle per unit is permitted in the parking lot. All other cars per unit will have to park on the street by registering for resident on-street parking with the City of Wilmington. If you do intend to have a vehicle with you as a resident of the Village of St. John, and you require handicap parking, proper documentation of a valid handicap parking permit must be submitted at the time of the request.
