Q: What is affordable housing?
Senior affordable housing communities offer private apartments for independent seniors with low or moderate incomes who meet federal or state income limits. These buildings typically offer easy access to transportation, shopping, medical facilities, and other amenities. Card access-secured entryways provide peace of mind. Buildings are well maintained and attractively landscaped.
Q: Who is eligible for residency?
Affordable housing communities are designed for people 62 and older whose income meets state- or federally-established guidelines. In our HUD subsidized community, residents pay rent based on 30% of their adjusted gross annual income. Income guidelines are established by the Department of Housing & Urban Development or the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Income limits vary by county.
Some affordable housing communities are open to adults 18 or older who require a barrier-free residence due to mobility impairment.
Q: How do I become a resident?
If you are interested in becoming a resident, you must contact that community directly to start the application process. To aid in your future planning, you should know that most Springpoint affordable housing communities have a waiting list of at least a year or longer.
