Brementowne Manor Affordable Senior Housing Waiting List to Open
Beginning on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, Brementowne Manor Apartments in Tinley Park will begin distributing application information packets to persons interested in placing their names on the facility's waiting list.

Brementowne Manor is a federally-subsidized apartment complex which provides affordable housing to low-income senior citizens and persons with mobility impairments.  Applicants for the housing for senior citizens must be at least 62 years of age.  All applicants must have a total annual income of less than $26,950 (one person) or $30,800 (two persons).  A full description of eligibility restrictions and other detailed information about Brementowne Manor is contained in the application packet.  All apartments are one bedroom.  Rents are subsidized under the HUD Section 8 Rental Assistance program.  Under this program, tenants pay a monthly rent equal to 30% of their monthly income, after adjustments for medical expenses.

Application packets may be picked up in person weekdays between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm at Brementowne Manor, 16130 S. Oak Park Avenue, Tinley Park, IL 60477.

Application packets will also be mailed out upon request.  Interested persons may call (708) 429-4088 during the same hours to request a packet.

When completed, the required forms must be submitted in person by the applicant at an application interview, or by mail.  Interviews are by appointment only.  Information about scheduling application submission interviews as well as other detailed instructions for completing the application forms can be found in the application packet.  Unfortunately, due to the anticipated demand, tours of the facility will not be available.

The application period will remain open until at least 90 names have been added to the current waiting list.
