I am excited to announce the opening of Horace Bushnell Apartments located at 4-40 Vine Street in Hartford. Columbus House has teamed up with Sheldon Oak Central Inc. and Schochet Companies to provide residential support services on site.
This is a 74 unit complex consisting of 23 subsidized units, 8 of the subsidized units are for individuals transitioning from homelessness and are attached to case management services. All 23 subsidized units are for individuals and families 62 years of age or older. 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units are available. For those going into a subsidized unit, rent is 30% of gross adjusted income. The remaining 51 units in the building are fair market rents. Rents are between $700 - $1100.
Apartments include heat and hot water. Tenants are responsible to pay for electricity. All units will include new high-quality appliances including a dish washer, oven/stove, refrigerator, garbage disposal, and individually-controlled central air conditioning. There are on-site laundry facilities. Some units include a washer and dryer. Apartment are less than 1 block from the bus line.
To qualify for a subsidized unit, all individuals in the household must be 62 years of age or older. In order to qualify for a unit attached to case management, individuals must be literally homeless as defined by HUD and 62 years of age or older. Individuals must be eligible for public housing.
