COLONY ACRES-Gibbon Housing Agency

Kearney Housing Agency owns and manages 40 units of Public Housing, known as Colony Acres. Colony Acres was developed to provide affordable units for seniors 50 years-old or older, and persons with disabilities. When there are no seniors on the wait list, the housing authority's wait list is then opened to other single persons.

Of the 40 units, 14 units are in a secured building, 12 units of which open into a common hallway. Twenty-six units are divided into small buildings with 4-7 joining apartments. Two units are mobility free.

This is independent living.

The tenants are responsible for their unit and personal needs. GHA does maintenance, lawn care and snow removal. Tenants are encouraged to plant and maintain flower gardens.

The Tenant Association plans various social activities throughout the year.

Living at Colony Acres is "small town" living at its best! Within walking distance to the Post Office, a bank, a grocery store and several churches, one just across the street. Friendly neighbors, home atmosphere and newly decorated apartments make it a great place to call home!

Rent is based on either 30 percent of the adjusted gross income or a flat rent, whichever is lower.

Flat rents vary depending on size of unit.

When experiencing vacancies, GHA is allowed to house over income individuals.
