Since this property may have HUD-funded Public Housing with subsidies that help pay tenants' rent, the property is likely to have a long waiting list. Housing authorities often open these waiting lists periodically. Important: Housing authorities don't always open housing waiting lists at a property-specific level or even allow applicants to choose at which property they can live. Many times, the housing authority will assign an applicant to a property without giving the applicant a choice.

*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.*

SUSSMAN HOUSE

Sussman House is a Federally funded, elderly/disabled development consisting of 100 units of which 97 units are one-bedrooms, five of which is a wheelchair accessible, and 3 are two-bedrooms apartments, all of which are wheelchair accessible. The building is a high rise, elevator-equipped apartment building located at 50 Pleasant Street. The Manager's office is located on the first floor.

Brookline Housing Authority has partnered with Springwell, our regional social service agency, to bring the CareConnection Program to the Sussman House . The CareConnections Program offers an on-site care coordinator to assist residents with services as needed so that they may remain independent in their homes. The care coordinator's office is located on the first floor.

This property is funded through HUD’s Public Housing program. These properties are typically owned and managed by a Public Housing Authority. These properties tend to be much older, as no new public housing has been built in many years. Since the Federal budget has historically (and notoriously) underfunded public housing renovations for decades, these properties tend to have higher vacancies due to uninhabitable units or liveable units that are in poor condition. In addition, since all public housing properties offer rent subsidies, low-income residents only pay rent based on their incomes. For that reason, these properties tend to have longer waiting lists. Check our public housing waiting list data for more information. Since **Sussman House** participates in the Public Housing 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.
