The Billie Brown Building is owned and managed by Titusville Housing Authority. It has 63 one-bedroom units and 2 two-bedroom units.
Eligible applicants must be age 62 or older. If under age 62, applicants must be either handicapped or disabled. There are income limits, and applicants must undergo screening which includes verification of credit reports, criminal backgrounds, and landlord references. The Billie Brown Building is a security building. Key fobs (which cannot be duplicated) unlock the outside doors. Visitors are admitted by an Enter Phone system in the outer lobby. Tenants must admit their own visitors. There are security cameras throughout the building and tenants can view the front lobby camera on their TV set.
All utilities are included in your rent, and there is also a reduced rate for television cable. There is a public room available for your use, as well as on-site laundry rooms for your convenience.
There is a waiting list, with an approximate waiting time of 3–4 years for elderly persons with no low income preference. The building has an Elderly Preference (age 62 and older) with this age group going ahead of younger applicants on the list.
Rent is based on 30% of your gross annual income, with deductions available for medical expenses, so everyone’s rent is different. A security deposit equal to one month’s rent is due at move in. This deposit is refunded less any damages to the unit within 30 days of vacancy.
You’ll enjoy these comfortable air conditioned apartments that come with a stove and a refrigerator.
Off street parking is available and there is a picnic shelter with a gas grill in the back yard. If keeping your home is becoming a challenge, then you’ll enjoy these maintenance-free apartments. No more grass to mow, or snow to shovel!
