The BCHA also manages several additional properties. These properties are NOT public housing. They have separate applications and waiting lists.
Tarsus Manor Senior Housing is a 33-unit development of one-bedroom apartments for senior citizens (ages 62 and over), located at 701 East Locust Street, Fleetwood, PA.
Features include modern appliances, a large community room, wall-to-wall carpeting, a security entrance, on-site laundry facility, elevator, and off-street parking. Mobility-impaired units are available, and we gladly accept Housing Choice Vouchers.
The Berks County Housing Authority manages this development on behalf of the owner, Tarsus Manor, Inc. Eligibility for this development is based on total annual family income, which may not exceed the following limits:
1 person: $35,650 2 persons: $40,750
The rent is fixed at $760.00 per month, which includes water, sewer, and trash.
Subject to funding availability, subsidies may be available through the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
If you meet the income requirements and are interested in applying, you can download a pre-application under the “Housing Resources” tab, “Forms and Policies”, and scroll down to “Tarsus Manor” to print the Pre-Application. If you are unable to print the application, you can call our office at 610-370-0822 and we can mail an application to you. Please mail your completed application to:

Your application will be added to our waiting list. As units become vacant, applicants will be contacted by mail to come to our office and complete a full application to determine eligibility. Applicants will be selected in the chronological order in which their pre-application was received by the BCHA. Unfortunately, due to the limited number of vacancies at Tarsus Manor, it is impossible to predict how long the wait will be for a unit to become available.
If there is any change in your mailing address or telephone number after you apply, please report these changes to us by writing to the address above. This will ensure that we always have current information in order to contact you.
The BCHA also manages three mobility-accessible homes in Berks County, under the name of Norman Commons. These properties are located at 512 Carsonia Avenue in Mount Penn and 30 & 32 East Norman Street in Wernersville.
