Residents are responsible for some utilities, which varies by development. Each site has a Laundry Room and Community Room. Units are cable ready, have an emergency call for aide system, private entrances and are equipped with stove and refrigerator. All units are located on ground level. Pets are allowed at these sites, in accordance with the Enfield Housing Authority's Pet Policy. Applicants must be age 62 or older OR 100% disabled as certified by the Social Security Administration or any other federal board or agency.

The income limits are set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The amounts listed are gross annual income limits. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the ability to meet base rent requirements as determined by the Enfield Housing Authority.
