What Is Affordable Senior Housing?

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD’s) affordable Senior Housing is HUD’s 202 Program that offers rental assistance (subsidized) for seniors and persons with disabilities who meet the requirements of the federal program. Rents are based on a resident’s adjusted gross income, which is calculated by subtracting approved medical expenses from their income. The resident then pays 30 percent of the adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. Residency requirements have been determined by HUD and are reflected in the Tenant Selection Plan that is specific to each property.

To be eligible for an apartment under the HUD 202 program, individuals or their spouse must be at least 62 years of age or older; individuals must have an annual income consistent with HUD guidelines for income maximums; individuals must be able to meet the posted residency criteria. All affordable senior housing communities comply with federal fair housing regulations, accepting age- and income-qualified residents without regard to race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.

What is a Tenant Selection Plan?

The Tenant Selection Plan outlines the requirements for application and acceptance as a Tenants. This Plan describes the information necessary to process an application for rental assistance and the screening process that is required of all applicants. It will provide the income and age eligibility guidelines as well as other important information. The Plan will also explain the project’s Waiting List and many other considerations for being selected as an eligible Tenant, including the compliance standards with HUD regulations and requirements prohibiting discriminations based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status.

What is a Waiting List?

There are waiting lists for all properties that are maintained at each property location. The waiting lists are kept at the individual properties rather than at the main office. Waiting lists are limited and may be closed from time to time if there are too many applicants. Interested tenants should contact the individual site manager of the property for the status of the waiting list and see if they are taking applications.

All of these properties comply with all HUD regulations and requirements prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, creed, sex, national origin, handicap or age. All facilities and services are administered in accordance with Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, Executive Order 11063 and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all regulations issued pursuant thereto.
