Public Housing for Older Adults and Persons with a Disability

Housing for Aging and Individuals with a Disability

The Federal Government and most states have programs that help pay for housing for older people with low or moderate incomes, less than $46,000 if single or $53,000 if married.

Usually you have to fill out an application, and there may be a waiting list. Some of these housing programs also offer help with:

  • Meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Shopping
  • Laundry

Residents typically live in their own apartments within the complex. Usually a Federal or State agency will review your monthly income and expenses to see if you are eligible for this type of housing. Rent payments are usually a percentage of your income.
