There are a few programs that provide access to financial support for assisted living services for older adults and adults with disabilities who choose to live in a Managed Residential Community or Congregate Housing.
- Congregate Housing for the Elderly: Program for low-income elders over the age of 62 who have temporary or periodic difficulties performing one or more ADLs. Generally for older adults who do not need a nursing level of care.
- Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP): Provides subsidized housing alongside personal care, medication administration, meals and other services to eligible residents who have difficulties performing at least three ADLs.
- Assisted Living Program: This is a Medicaid-funded program offered through the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE) and participants must be eligible for the CHCPE. The Assisted Living Program is open to both Medicaid-eligible individuals and those who are not Medicaid eligible. Persons with incomes over 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines must contribute to the cost of care.
