Myrtle Oaks

Myrtle Oaks

Myrtle Oaks is a 99-unit apartment complex for low income seniors located in northeast Tampa.  Sponsored by Gulf Coast 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.

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