The Sarasota Housing Authority currently owns and operates 407 units of public housing. These units are reserved for low-income families. Residents who live in our public housing units pay 30% of the monthly adjusted income for rent and utilities. Subsidy from HUD provides the additional funding required to operate the property. 100 units located at McCown Tower are restricted to elderly (62+) and near elderly families (age 55 and older). The remaining 307 units of public housing are for families and seniors and are all located in the Newtown area of Sarasota. In order to be eligible for Public Housing, you must be considered low-income in accordance with HUD’s income limits for Sarasota/Bradenton. SHA is in the process of redeveloping or modernizing its entire public housing stock. To read more about the redevelopment, go to our Redevelopment page.
Our housing programs have income limits, which are set by HUD every year for our area, based on your family size. A family’s total annual income must not exceed the low income amount, defined as 80% of the area median income effective January 1, 2014:
|80% Area Median Income:||32,100||36,700||41,300||45,850||49,550||53,2000||56,900||60,550|
Located near beautiful downtown Sarasota, this is the perfect place to call home.
Our two distinct high rises provide one bedroom apartments for low-income and disabled persons. Apartments are fully equipped with newly renovated full kitchens and bathrooms, highly efficient air conditioning, and a private balcony. And the views are spectacular!
