"I have worked for SNHS for over 20 years. It has been a pleasure working with our elderly housing residents and contributing to the mission of the housing program. I take special pride in keeping our 3 housing sites in Rochester clean. This took on a special meaning to me during Covid- knowing I was helping keep people safe."

 - Cindy Phillips (Housing)

Program Spotlight: Senior Housing
Supportive housing for the elderly
As one of New Hampshire’s leading providers of housing to income eligible seniors, we are pleased to offer quality, affordable housing for the elderly throughout the state. We offer 910 apartments in 25 different elderly housing sites through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 202 Supportive Housing Program. We have an additional four tax credit housing sites with funding from the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority and Nashua Housing and Redevelopment Authority. Residents in these apartments pay 30% of their adjusted income for rent with the balance subsidized under HUD’s Section 8 Rental Assistance Program with heat and utilities included in the rent.
