Low-Income Senior Apartments Slated for November
Housing, Seniors

 

A new housing community for very low-income seniors is scheduled to open next month in east Las Vegas.

The Tonopah Lamb Apartments, 4250 E. Tonopah Avenue in Las Vegas, will  provide 34 one-bedroom apartments to qualifying low-income households with at least one household member 62 years old or above. Rent is based on 30 percent of household monthly income, with rental assistance provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Income limits apply, but no minimum income is required. Additionally, rent includes water, sewer, and trash/snow removal. Applications are now being accepted for housing; there is no application fee, and applicants are not obligated to move in by applying.

Apartments will be approximately 540 square feet, and wheelchair accessible apartments also are available for seniors who need a barrier-free apartment. Apartments include grab bars in the shower and bath, ample cupboard and closet space, and an open floor plan. Accessible apartments will include features such as accessible stove-tops and ovens, roll-under counters and sink in the kitchen and bath, large roll-in showers, 36-inch-wide doors with lever-action handles, raised electrical outlets and lowered light switches.

The apartments will be the 16th building sponsored by Accessible Space, Inc. in Nevada.
