About Supportive Housing

The Supportive Housing Program combines housing with services for older adults and people living with disabilities. Through this program, Resident Service Coordinators are on-site in subsidized housing to help residents access community resources, arrange meals, plan social activities, and manage issues that arise—helping to foster a sense of stability and community. 

Overall, there are 61 Supportive Housing locations across the state that provide location-specific services to over 8,800 subsidized housing residents.   

Eligibility and How to Apply

Supportive Housing services are available to all residents that live in specific Supportive Housing Sites. Residents must apply directly to the housing owner in order to live in these properties. Supportive housing eligibility is determined by each building owner.
