The Housing Authority of Southeastern Utah’s MAPS Senior Living affordable housing project is nearly finished at its Park Drive location near Moab Regional Hospital. Applications are now being accepted.
“We’re specifically targeting working individuals, 55 and older, making roughly $23,000 to $30,000 per year … [working] fulltime,” said Housing Authority Executive Director Ben Riley in an email. That’s about $12 to $15.50 per hour.
Riley said those who both work and receive social security can also qualify if their income doesn’t exceed the ranges mentioned above.
MAPS Senior Living features 36 units. Thirty are one-bedroom apartments and six have two bedrooms. Anyone who already has a housing voucher could use it at MAPS. Rents are based on income, and range from $285 to $700 for a one-bedroom unit and from $744 to $850 for a two-bedroom unit.
One pet per unit will be allowed at the nonsmoking housing complex.
There are units set aside for veterans, those who require accessibility as provided for in the Americans with Disabilities Act, the mentally disabled and those experiencing homelessness.
