Applications – Wisteria View Manor


If you are on our waiting list please remember to contact our office every six months to verify your desire to remain on our wait list. Failure to do so will result in your application being dropped from our wait list.

Due to the popularity of the program the wait list for our 77 standard units is closed and we are not accepting new applications for these units at this time. The most recent opening of our standard unit wait list occurred in September 2020. Based upon historical tenant turn over rates we believe our wait list for a standard unit will remain closed through the spring of 2024. We will update this page as conditions change.

Eight of our property’s apartments are wheelchair accessible units, none of which are currently available. The wait list for wheelchair accessible units is open and we are accepting applications to be placed on the wait list from those who have a verifiable need for the features of our wheelchair accessible units.

To be eligible, an applicant must require the use of the wheelchair accessible features of the special apartment unit and meet HUD income limits (currently $77,700 for a one person household and $88,800 for a two person household).

We serve low income elderly households and low income individuals who require the features of our eight wheelchair accessible apartment units. In the selection of applicants for admission, eligibility criteria have been established in accordance with HUD guidelines. The following eligibility standards will be applied:
