New Low-Income Senior Housing to Open

In May 1999, a new senior apartment building called Village East Senior Apartments is opening at 864 Village Way, Monroe, WA 98272. Village East is a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 202 project sponsored by Senior Services of Snohomish County.

   The 39-unit building will house persons age 62 years and older who meet federal (HUD) eligibility requirements. Preference will be given to persons who are involuntarily displaced, live in substandard housing, are homeless, or spend more than fifty percent of their gross monthly income on rent and basic utilities. Village East rents are no more than thirty percent of the tenants' monthly income.
