Emerson Point was the first purpose-built affordable assisted living program developed in Iowa under the low-income housing tax credit program. The 54 units filled quickly, and the program now maintains a waiting list of prospective tenants.
This first-of-its-kind facility has served as a model for other developers and organizations interested in creating an assisted living program for low-income seniors in their community.
Emerson Point provides an environment that promotes independence, dignity and autonomy, with a proven track record of savings to Iowa’s Medicaid budget.
