With home prices climbing and affordable rentals becoming scarcer
in the area, finding affordable housing has become a challenge
for many low-income residents, particularly seniors, many of whom
live on fixed incomes. According to the Census 2000, 11 percent
(5,409) of the population in Manteca were over the age of 62. The
Manteca city council and redevelopment agency have made it a
priority to actively pursue development of affordable housing for
the community’s seniors.
