Remaining Widow Doesn't Qualify for Elderly Housing
Facts: A Section 202 site that provides supportive housing for the elderly sought to evict the wife of a deceased resident. She moved into the unit with her husband in May 2004 and lived there continuously for the past 14 years. Her husband, the tenant of record and head of household, died in September 2013 when his wife was 55 years old. She is currently 60 years old. HUD regulations define “elderly” as 62 years of age or older at the time of initial occupancy.
