Supportive Housing & Eligibility

Supportive Housing combines housing with services for older adults and people with disabilities.

Supportive Housing Coordinators:

  • Help residents access community resources
  • Work with the local housing
  • Oversee a 24/7 emergency response system
  • Arrange meals
  • Plan social activities

Supportive Housing Coordinators also manage issues that arise in housing to foster stability and a sense of community

The private apartments include a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen/dining area. Residents have a lease with the local Housing Authority that runs the building. There are 41 Supportive Housing sites around the state with 6,060 units available.

Eligibility

To be eligible for Supportive Housing an individual must be either:

  • “Elderly” as defined by the housing agency (either age 60 and older or 62 and older, depending on the type of housing), or
  • A person with a documented disability

The consumer must meet the financial eligibility guidelines and pass any housing authority screening (e.g., criminal records, housing history, etc.).
