  1. Almost $900. a month for 1 bedroom is affordable housing? Maybe for someone working a 40hr work week making good money. Not for seniors living on a little over 1,000 a month.

    1. The affordability metric in this case is based off a 60% of the Area Median Income, which unfortunately is still out of reach for many people. I agree that there should be more truly affordable housing for seniors in particular.
