Slide notes:Finally, subsidized housing may be available for elderly or disabled persons through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These are often housing complexes where residents live in their own apartments and may be able to obtain assistance with practical tasks such as meals, shopping, laundry, and housekeeping. People must qualify for this housing based on low income and then apply to a federal or state agency. Often there is a waiting list because of the high demand. Billing is done as a percentage of monthly income. 19
