Senior Housing To Hold Lottery For Waiting List
If you are a senior citizen in Verona, or know one, you’re going to want to pay attention to this: Hillwood Terrace, the senior citizen building on the hilltop across from Verona High School, is going to be giving out applications that could lead to an apartment there.
Hillwood is so-called Section 8 housing, which means it is subsidized by the federal government and its rents are well below market. As a result, a lot of folks want to get into Hillwood and the wait for an apartment can be very, very long. You can’t just drive up and ask about renting. Next week, however, Hillwood will open up applications for a lottery that could result in a spot on its waiting list.
Here’s how it will happen. Beginning on Monday, August 8, applications will be available at the Hillwood office, which is in the lobby of the big building at 100 Hillwood Terrace. The office will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. from August 8 to 12, and on the same hours again from August 15 through 19. Your completed application must be mailed to Hillwood no later than August 24. The lottery will be held at Hillwood on August 30 at 10 a.m.
Applicants for a Hillwood apartment must be 62 or older, with an income that cannot exceed $44,950 for a single person and $51,400 for a couple. Under federal law, 40% of new admissions must have incomes below 30% of the median income limit in any given year. Hillwood is not a nursing home nor a retirement complex with an assisted living facility like Crane’s Mill in West Caldwell. But the Verona Senior Citizen Bus makes regular stops there and there are some organized activities for residents.
If you, or a senior you know, needs help filling out the Hillwood application, you can call Deborah Crenshaw or Pat Kozak at 973-239-3131.
