Guest blog from Rose Dunn, Executive Director of Mora Housing and Redevelopment Authority
When I began working for the Mora HRA nearly nine years ago, there was a waiting list of 82 families for 67 affordable/subsidized units. Since that time, the HRA has added 23 units of senior subsidized apartments. And yet, today there are 277 families on the waiting list for 90 units. Of those, 220 are older adults (over 55). And the demand will only continue to rise as many more people are just a few years from retiring. (Over one third of our region’s total population are 55 and older).
