CentraCare - Benet Place Eligibility

Both Benet Place buildings were built with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a Section 202 housing project for the elderly.

Applicants must:

  • Be 62 years of age or older (head of household or co-head)
  • Meet the income limits set each year by HUD (50 percent of the area’s median income)
  • Be mobility-impaired to apply for the accessible units

Financial assistance is available through the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Rental Assistance Program. The amount of rent paid by the residents is 30 percent of their monthly adjusted income. This is determined through the interview and certification process. Benet Place does not discriminate in its resident selection process on grounds of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, sex, disability, public assistance status, marital status, familial status or sexual preference.
