The Long Beach Redevelopment Agency announced last week that applications are now available for a low-income senior housing project that broke ground one year ago. The 65-unit senior housing development was constructed in collaboration with The Long Beach Housing Development Company, the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Menorah Housing Foundation.
The new units are located at 575 East Vernon at the northwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and Vernon Street in Long Beach and are located near public transportation, shopping areas, the Long Beach Memorial Hospital, Veterans Memorial Park and the Burnett Branch Library.
Applicants for the units must be 62 years of age at the time of application and meet HUD income limits: maximum annual income for one person is $26,550; and for two persons $30,300. Applications are being distributed and processed by the developer, Menorah Housing Foundation, and can be obtained by calling (818) 972-4410.
“Exactly one year ago this month we celebrated the groundbreaking of the Long Beach Senior Housing development, and today we are pleased to announce this latest milestone,” said Craig Beck, executive director of the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency. “We are one step closer to welcoming 65 new families to their new, state-of-the-art homes.”
For more than 45 years, the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency has worked to enhance the quality of life by revitalizing neighborhoods, promoting economic development, creating jobs, providing affordable housing and encouraging resident participation.
