Laura asks…

Are there any low-income apartments for senior citizens with a porch in the Atlanta/surrounding area?

Looking for 65+ year old HUD apartments in the Atlanta/Fulton/Gwinnett/Woodstock area with a porch on the unit.

Administrator answers:

Just about every county across the US has a ‘housing authority’. That’s an office that sort of oversees low cost housing for county residents. The rents are usually on a sliding scale based on income. I’ll mention this, because it’s the way it was in my county, there’s usually a waiting list.

If you’ll phone the county offices where you live (I have no idea if all those towns are in one county) and ask them how you might reach the housing authority you’ll get a number and can further investigate. I hope you’re lucky enough to find a place with a porch!

Have you tried to qualify for what they call section 8. Many cities also have special programs to get you very low rent places, since the city pays the subsidy to owner to cover most of the rent.
