Q: What type of housing is Winslow Manor? Is it low income housing?
A: Winslow Manor is a subsidized housing community of seniors age 62 and over and the mobility impaired age 18 and over. 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 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, as well as heat, water and an electric allowance. An electric allowance is a certain amount taken off the resident’s rent payment meant to help the resident pay their electric bill. The allowance amount is based on the average usage of the apartment and may change annually. Residents will still receive an electric bill, but the allowance is intended to help pay for it. Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the state.

A: Yes, currently Winslow Manor has a waiting list. Please call for the approximate waiting time.
Q: What is the Security Deposit?
