Senior Housing

Gum Springs Glen

The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) currently owns 9 affordable senior housing communities and 2 affordable assisted living communities throughout the Fairfax County area. 

The FCHRA’s independent living properties typically feature gated, garden style apartment homes. Properties typically include one-bedroom apartments, but studio apartments and two-bedroom units are included in some communities. Our senior properties are often located near and/or are co-located with senior centers and other community amenities keeping older adults well-connected with access to a number of engaging programs and activities.

FCRHA’s assisted living communities are licensed and offer meals and daily activities along with available assistance with housekeeping, laundry, medication management and personal assistance. 

INDEPENDENT LIVING

ELIGIBILITY

Program eligibility may differ slightly depending on the property and the funding program under which particular units are allocated. In general, the following eligibility applies:

  • Age: All properties are available to adults ages 62 and above. Units at Saintsbury Plaza, Atrium at Metro West, and the Crest of Alexandria are available to adults ages 55 and above.
     
  • Income: Both minimum and maximum income limits apply. Values may differ depending on unit size and the funding program attributed to it. Please refer to our Independent Living Property Directory for details.
     

VACANCIES AND WAITLISTS

As vacancies become available at each property, they are filled with applicants currently on the community’s waitlist. As the leasing of these properties is not time-limited (tenants may reside at their rental property as long as they meet the program qualifications and leasing requirements) it is impossible to estimate when vacancies will become available. 

We encourage prospective renters to contact the community they are interested in directly for specific information on the property’s waiting list and its status, vacancies, application process, and an applicant status on the waiting list.
