Unfortunately, there is no exact way of knowing when you’ll be accepted from our waiting list. There is no specific period that you must wait, nor is there a maximum wait period that automatically gets you in. We would love to accept everybody, but that is not possible.
A formal initial interview and verification of information certification will be scheduled by the Office when your name approaches the top of our wait list. At that initial interview meeting, you will be able to see an apartment the size your household qualifies, and get an idea of room dimensions and layout. Read More

We have no wheelchair accessible units due to the age and construction of our building. However, Gloria Dei Towers does not discriminate against eligible persons on the basis of age, sex, race, creed, color, religion, national origin, handicap, or familial status.
We have preference for applicants who are United States Veterans, and preference for those applicants who live or work in Montgomery County. These preferences have been approved by HUD and give priority to those applicants over other applicants on our wait lists for housing.
In order to be considered a couple, there must be two names on the application for residency at the Towers. Also, there must be at least one applicant that is 62 years of age or better for the household to qualify for residency. This is under accordance of the HUD regulations.
Yes, there is a wait list for couple applicants. Much like there is a wait list for individuals, couples will also be placed on the same wait list. Please contact the Gloria Dei Towers Office for information on the process of getting on the One Bedroom Wait List.
