The apartment rents are income based. You would pay 30% of your gross income (minus medical expenses if you are disabled and collecting SSI or SSD). Heat, lights, hot water, and garbage pick-up are included.
We serve families, senior citizens and disabled persons. We give preference to persons living and/or working in the Village of Herkimer. At Herkimer Housing Authority, we place people/families strictly off of a waiting list. If you do not fit into any of the 3 categories listed above, you would remain on the bottom of our waiting list until such a time as there are no families, senior citizens or disabled people on the list. If this occurs, your eligibility would be based on date the application was received.
If you would like to apply for an apartment, you can either stop into our office at the Mid-Town Apartment building at 315 North Prospect St. Herkimer to pick up an application or print the application documents from the Application link on this website
