Myrtle Oaks

providing quality, affordable housing for low-income seniors

Myrtle Oaks is a 99-unit apartment complex in northeast Tampa, dedicated to providing quality, affordable housing for low-income seniors aged 62 and older.

How it works:

Tenants are required to undergo a screening process for eligibility. After acceptance, the tenants’ portion of the rent is based on the household’s adjusted monthly income (appx 30%) and HUD subsidizes the remainder of the tenants’ rent.

All HUD and Fair Housing guidelines are strictly followed and enforced.

The well-maintained facility is complemented by quality-of-life enhancing activities such as:
  • Craft clubs
  • Study groups
  • Informational seminars
  • Holiday dinners*
  • Group activities*
  • Games
  • Transportation

Service Coordinators are on staff and available to help with any additional services or benefits for which the tenants are eligible.

*Past events have included:
  • Valentine’s Day brunch
  • Memorial Day program
  • Forth of July cookout
  • Labor Day picnic
  • Halloween party
  • Veterans’ Day program
  • Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s dinners
