Eligibility & Applications

Eligibility for these programs is based on income and family size.  Income limits are set by the commonwealth and are adjusted periodically.  In addition to the income requirement, to be eligible for elderly/disabled housing, applicants must be 60 years of age or older or have a qualifying disability.  By regulation, under-60 disabled individuals must compromise 13.5% of the total units, therefore, 5 apartments must be occupied by disabled individuals under the age of 60.  

Residents of West Boylston have local preference and those who are veterans, spouses or surviving spouse of veterans qualify for an additional preference.

There is a waiting list for apartments at Orchard Knoll and applicants are encouraged to apply, as the wait for an apartment may be years.  Please call the Housing Authority office and we will be happy to send you an application.  

If you have any questions, please contact us.
