Q: What type of housing is Pioneer Manor? Is it low-income housing?

A: Pioneer Manor is a subsidized housing community for seniors over the age of 62 and the mobility impaired. The term “subsidized housing” means that the rent is based on income. A resident of the community pays approximately 30% of their income as rent.

Q: Who pays the remainder of rent?

A: The remainder of the rent is paid in the form of a subsidy. If a resident qualifies for a subsidy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a U.S. Government Agency, will pay the remainder of the rent.

Q: How is rent calculated?

A: Resident rent is based on approximately 30% of income. A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your gross annual income and divide it by 12 months. This will give you an estimate of what your monthly rent could be.

Q: What does the rent include?

A: Monthly rental of the apartment, including most utilities. You will be responsible for your telephone and cable TV bill.

Q: Is there any public transportation available?

A: Yes, although we do not have the means to furnish transportation, the Fillmore County Transit Service is just across the parking lot and, for a small fee, will take you around town or around the county.

Q: Do you allow pets?

A: Pioneer Manor welcomes you to bring your pets with you. Fish and birds are welcomed without a deposit. We also welcome small dogs and cats with a pet deposit. There is a limit of one animal (cat or dog) per apartment and there are certain size and breed restrictions.

Q: Can the Community Room and Sun Room be used for family get-togethers?

A: Yes, that’s what it is there for. We also use those rooms for monthly resident get-togethers.

Q: Can I have a washer and dryer in my apartment?

A: No, we have a laundry room on the first floor with two coin-operated washers and two coin-operated dryers.
