Affordable Housing Eligibility
Simon C. Fireman Community is a 100% affordable senior supportive housing community. You or a member of your household must be 62 years or older to live here.
Applicants aged 62+ earning between $43,050 - $58,920 for a single occupant, or between $43,050 - $67,320 for two people, or individuals with mobile section 8 vouchers are invited to apply to rent one of 27 newly-built expansion apartments reserved for those at 60% Area Median Income (AMI). The subsidized monthly rent for these apartments is $1,499. Currently there is no waitlist for these units and all applications will be processed and approved in the order of receipt.
The expansion also includes four units reserved for seniors earning at or below 50% AMI, and 11 units reserved for seniors earning at or below 30% AMI. Initial residents for these 15 units were selected via a lottery on March 2, 2023. This lottery was conducted in accordance with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity guidelines to ensure access for those who may traditionally have difficulty accessing affordable housing. If you would like to be added to the post-lottery waitlist, please apply through the process below.
