What is Section 202 Housing for the Elderly?

Section 202 senior apartments are for low or very low income seniors over the age of 62. Many, but not all communities, have a Service Coordinator that will help the senior find needed resources and apply for any senior programs that they may be eligible for. For the most part, these communities tend to be near public transportation, medical, and shopping centers. For more information about HUD's Section 202 program please see Senioridy's Section 202 Fact Sheet.

In Order to Qualify

Occupancy in Section 202 housing is open to any very low-income household comprised of at least one person who is at least 62 years old at the time of initial occupancy. Income limits are set according to where you live (State & County). In order to determine if your income qualifies as "Very Low Income" please use HUD's Income Limits.

Affordable Housing Standards:

While each community will have its own special features, all Section 202 Properties will include the following:

  • Fire Alarms
  • Smoke Detectors
  • Facilities/Residences are Non-Smoking
  • On Site Mail Delivery
  • Elevators on Multi-Floor Facilities
  • At Least One Accessible Unit

Rent Based on Income

Rents at this community are based on the resident's income. Typically rent is set at or about 30 - 40% of the resident's adjusted income. So, for example, if a renter's adjusted income is $1200 per month, rent would be around $300 - $400 per month.

On-Site Services Coordinator

A Service Coordinator assists residents by helping them to identify, locate and acquire supportive services such as home help, legal assistance, transportation, health care, home delivered meals and money management services. The Service Coordinator can also help residents apply for Social Security, SSI, VA benefits, Medicare/Medicaid and other programs. Service Coordinators can also organize wellness clinics and educational programs on issues like diabetes, nutrition, depression or similar.

How To Apply

It is not uncommon to not hear back from Affordable Hosuing Providers when leaving messages. Many property managers will float from one property to another and will have several communities that they are responsible for managing. If you are not successful with calling and submitting contact forms, you may find it more beneficial to visit the community in person to speak with the manager directly. If a manager is not available when you go by, try to ask a community resident if they know what days and hours that the manager normally keeps. if you can't go yourself, try to ask a relative or friend to go on your behalf.

Application Tips

  1. You may need to apply at each community separately, even if they are owned or managed by the same company.
  2. You will need to speak with the manager at the community to find out what other information you will need to submit in order to apply. Most will require at least:
    • Drivers License or state or government issued picture ID
    • Copy of your Social Security Card
    • Proof of ALL Income
    • Bank Statements for ALL Accounts
    • 3 Credit References
    • 3 Personal References
    • You will probably have to sign a release for a credit check and a criminal background check.
Good Luck!
