The Town of Patagonia is the owner and operator of the Patagonia Garden Apartments, a federally-funded senior citizen complex near the center of town. The complex contains four one-bedroom and two studio apartments.
Anyone is eligible to apply for the apartments, however qualified applicants must be age 60 or older and have an income that does not exceed the specified limits.
One studio and one of the one-bedroom apartments are reserved for tenants in the “very low” income category ( $16,400 for one person and $18750 for two) . They rent for $236.00 and $249.00 per month, respectively.
Monthly rents for the apartments for tenants in the “low” income category ($19,680 for one person, $22,500 for two) are $250.00 for the studio and $285.00 for one-bedroom.
Rent includes water, sewer, and garbage collection. The tenant is responsible for gas and electric service. Security deposits are required.
No security deposit is required, however, for rental of an apartment. Tenants must agree to a one-year lease, and only the first month’s rent is required to move in. One pet, under 25 pounds, is permitted for each apartment.
Applications for tenancy at Patagonia Garden Apartments can be found at Town Hall, or can be mailed out on request. When an application is received, an appointment will be make for the applicant to visit the property and take part in an intake interview.
