Senior Housing and Services

Pleasanton offers a range of housing programs and related services to assist senior citizens. For most programs, a senior is someone who is 62 years or older.

Rental Housing

There are currently approximately 600 apartments in Pleasanton reserved for rental by low and very low income seniors. Each complex handles its own leasing and has specific eligibility requirements. Interested parties should contact each office directly for leasing information.
