HUD announces $15M in funding to support aging in place for low-income seniors

HUD recently awarded $15 million to select owners of HUD-assisted senior housing developments to help low-income seniors age in place and delay the need for nursing home care. These HUD funds will help owners to hire a full-time enhanced service coordinator and a part-time wellness nurse to connect seniors with supportive services. These three-year grants are funded through HUD’s Supportive Services Demonstration for Elderly Households in HUD-Assisted Multifamily Housing. These grants will provide evidence about the effectiveness of this enhanced supportive services model. The demonstration will be evaluated on aging in place, avoiding early transitions to institutional care and preventing unnecessary health care utilizations.
