Verde Valley Manor is funded through the United States Department of Agriculture's Rural Development (RD) program and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Residents may be eligible to pay reduced monthly rental rates for apartments occupied under the Rural Housing Rental Assistance program or the HUD Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments program. These programs are designed to reduce the amount of money low income individuals pay for rent and utilities. Eligibility requirements vary slightly for the two programs.


Of the Manor's 232 apartments, 224 are funded by Rural Development. To be eligible for housing in one of these units, applicants must meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • Must be 62 years of age or older, OR
  • Must have a handicap or disability

In addition, applicants must meet the eligibility requirements for adjusted annual income established by the federal government. The current income requirements are listed below and are subject to change:

Maximum Income
Single Household
Maximum Income
Couple Household
Very Low Income $ 26,450 $ 30,200
Low Income $ 42,300 $ 48,300
Moderate Income $47,800 $ 53,800

Applicants determined eligible for housing will be placed on our wait list and then selected on a first-come, first-served basis according to the income group as identified above when an apartment becomes available.  Applications are continually accepted for Rural Development funded apartments and are tracked in order of receipt, based upon date and time received.

NOTE: Rural Development applications require a nonrefundable $20 application fee per applicant to be paid when the completed application is submitted.


Of the Manor's 232 apartments, 8 are funded by HUD. To be eligible for housing administered through HUD's Section 202/8 program, applicants must be 62 years of age or older and meet the annual income eligibility requirements established by HUD.

Applicants determined eligible for housing will be placed on the waiting list and then selected according to income group identified above when an apartment becomes available.  Within each income group, housing is offered on a first-come, first-served order of application, based on date and time the complete application is received.

Applications are accepted for HUD funded housing only during periods of marketing necessary for development of an adequate waiting list.

There is no application fee for HUD.
