The Plainville Senior Center is encouraging anyone interested in subsidized housing to submit an application to the Plainville Housing Authority. The Housing Authority will give out applications for their waiting list on June 7, 8 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at their office, 20 Stillwell Drive (behind the Senior Center). Applications must be submitted by June 16.
Senior housing is available to anyone over the age of 62 or to people with disabilities who are over 18 years of age. Plainville residency is not a requirement. Income guidelines apply.
Once the application process is closed, local AARP volunteers will conduct a lottery to determine places on the waiting list, so there is no need to be the first in line to hand in your application.
Base rents start at $500 for a studio apartment, $600 for a smaller one-bedroom apartment, and $650 for a larger one-bedroom apartment. Tenants are responsible for heat, lights, air conditioning and hot water (all electric), but energy assistance is available.
For more information, or to have an application mailed to you, call the Plainville Housing Authority at 860-747-8519.
