New Grants to Develop Evidence on Effective Supportive Services for Elderly Households

HUD awarded $15 million to select owners of HUD-assisted senior housing developments on January 13 to help their low-income senior tenants age in place. Funded through HUD’s Supportive Services Demonstration for Elderly Households in HUD-Assisted Multifamily Housing, these three-year grants will produce evidence about the effectiveness of this enhanced supportive services model for elderly households and will evaluate the value of enhanced service coordination paired with affordable housing for seniors. The demonstration will be independently evaluated to determine the specific impact of the enhanced supportive services model on: aging in place in HUD-assisted senior developments; avoiding early transitions to institutional care; and preventing unnecessary and often costly health care utilization, such as emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
