The waiting list for a 75-unit subsidized senior apartment building called The Glenwood at Leonia will be accepting new names for the first time in more than a decade.
There are currently no available units in the building, but the Leonia Retirement Housing Corporation typically sees about four apartments turn over each year. At present, there are only a few names left on the building’s waiting list, which was last opened for new applications in 2007.
The corporation will add 100 new names to the bottom of the existing list by conducting an application lottery.
To be eligible, at least one member of the household must be at least 62 years old at the time of application, with incomes of no more than $51,550 for a single person and no more than $58,900 for two people. Rents are income-based.
Applications are available to be picked up during a four-day period at the offices of the Leonia Retirement Housing Corp.
Tuesday, July 10 through Friday, July 13
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
270 Glenwood Ave.
Completed applications must be returned by July 30, after which a lottery will be held to determine the 100 names to be placed on the list. All applicants will be informed in writing about whether they secured a spot.
Anyone with additional questions may call the Leonia Retirement Housing Corp. at 201-947-9779.
Age-Friendly Teaneck will continue to pass along information about affordable senior housing opportunities as we learn of them.
