The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced on Friday, that it provides a number of finder tools and other resources to help find affordable housing for seniors and people with disabilities.
Following is a copy of HUD’s announcement, which was issued by USA.gov, the US government’s official website, on Friday, August 10, 2012:
You can also look for multifamily units by state that rent to seniors and people with disabilities. HUD does not provide details like eligibility, waiting list information, or types of accessible features for these properties, but the list can help you identify potential rentals in your area.
There’s also the public housing program and public housing choice vouchers, commonly called Section 8. Public housing comes in all sizes and types and is managed by local housing agencies that are funded by the federal government. Public housing choice vouchers allow you to find a private rental and the government pays the landlord directly to subsidize the rent. Both programs are limited to low-income families and individuals.
If you have questions or need help finding a rental, talk to a HUD-approved housing counselor.”
