What is Housing?

There are many types of housing available where you can live independently. You can choose to live in a private home or apartment with or without services. You can also choose to live in a group home, assisted living, or adult foster care where services are provided to you and other people living with you. Housing with services is usually licensed or regulated by an outside agency. You may want to ask about this when thinking about your choices.


What programs and services are available for Housing?


There are a lot of ways to help you find or keep housing in the community that is accessible and that you can afford. Some housing assistance helps you live independently. Other housing assistance comes with services that you may need and want.


What do Housing programs and services cost?


The costs to you are different depending on your situation.  Most of these programs have rules that are based on your income and level of need. 


How do I meet the requirements for Housing? How do I apply?


Each program has different rules so you will need to contact the program directly.
