Waitlist Forecast

Since this property is a Section 202 property and includes rental assistance, it will tend to have a longer waiting list. Sometimes these waiting lists can be months or years long and may or may not be accepting new applicants. You should contact the property to verify.

Note: Affordable Housing Online has not confirmed the waiting list status directly with the property. This waiting list status forecast is based on our housing experts' knowledge of similar properties. You should always confirm this status directly with the property.

Located in Savannah’s historic neighborhood, Savannah Gardens Senior Residences is the first elderly development in the redevelopment of Strathmore Estates, a 44-acre site that contained 380 units of substandard rental housing located on Savannah’s East Side. Mercy Housing partnered with CHSA Development and the City of Savannah to redevelop this community, first built in the 1940s. The entire Savannah Gardens project is part of an EarthCraft Costal Community ensuring sustainable development and energy efficiency. Savannah Gardens Senior Residences is an income-based community in which the household pays no more than 30% of household income on rent. The property features 39 apartment homes for seniors 62 years and older.
 

Dave's Thoughts On Savannah Gardens Senior Residences

As a modern Section 202 property built after 1990, Savannah Gardens Senior Residences only allows seniors aged 62 or older. Older “Legacy” 202 properties (pre-1990) do allow younger persons with disabilities. Modern 202 properties tend to be in better physical condition primarily due to age. Section 202 properties include a rent subsidy, so you will only pay 30% of your income toward rent. To qualify, you will need to earn 50% of the Area Median Income or less. These properties often include a resident services coordinator that arranges services like healthcare management, transportation, and social activities. If you are a senior or have a senior in your household, and need services to maintain independent living, this property may be good for you. Since this property participates in the HUD 202 program and has a property based subsidy, if you have a Section 8 voucher, you would have to give up your voucher to move in.
