Affordable Senior Housing - The HUD 202 Program provides rental assistance for seniors( at least 62 years old ) who meet the requirements of the federal program. Rental fees 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% of the adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. Residency requirements have been determined by HUD. Eligibility for an apartment under the HUD 202 program requires that the individual or their spouse must be at least 62 years of age or older; seniors must have an annual income consistent with HUD guidelines for income maximums; seniors 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.
