Affordable Housing


We regret to announce that we do not have any apartment units available and our waiting lists are closed until further notice.

Living safely and comfortably as part of a supportive community is especially important for low income seniors or individuals with disabilities.

Gulf Coast JFCS supports two housing facilities in conjunction with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Myrtle Oaks

Myrtle Oaks is a 99-unit apartment complex for low income seniors located in northeast Tampa.  Sponsored by Gulf Coast JFCS and under the auspices of a separate housing corporation, Myrtle Oaks was funded by a $5.7 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

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.

The well-maintained facility is complemented by quality-of-life enhancing activities.

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