Myrtle Oaks is a 99-unit apartment complex for low income elderly located in northeast Tampa. Sponsored by Gulf Coast JFCS for 20 years 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.
