Senior Citizen Housing
Description: (click to open/close)

Within Ulster County, there are several rental housing units for Senior Citizens. Some are exclusively for Seniors, while others also have a number of apartments for handicapped persons of any age. It is important to know that Senior Citizen Housing is not necessarily handicapped-accessible, so if you have special needs, please inquire.

This guide lists only sites which have some sort of government subsidy, under the general term of “affordable housing.”  Because the complexes were given approval under various programs, the subsidies and the terminology vary from one to another, so you will need to check the eligibility guidelines for each. 

They include no supportive services or staffing to address the special needs of aging residents. This housing is not licensed by a government agency, but subsidized housing may be  supervised by a government housing agency.

Generally speaking, these apartments have waiting lists, and it is a good idea to apply ahead of time if you are thinking of moving into an apartment. They are arranged alphabetically by the name of the apartments, not by geographic location.
