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.

Fuel Assistance Taking Applications Through May 2

We believe everyone should have a safe, warm place to call home and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps make that possible for those in our community in need.

Thanks to funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, New Hampshire residents who are elderly, disabled and low-income are provided financial assistance needed to pay for vital heating and utility expenses through the colder months. LIHEAP also offers case management to develop a plan to achieve increased financial self-sufficiency to avoid energy-related emergencies such as running out of heating fuel.

The Fuel Assistance Program provides grant benefits from $253 to $2520 for heating purposes that do not have to be repaid to eligible homeowners and renters for the winter season as follows:

  • If your heat is electric or natural gas, bills from November 1st can be paid until your benefit amount is used up or the program year ends.
  • If your heat is from deliverable fuels, oil, kerosene, propane, wood or coal, deliveries made from October 1st – April 30th can be paid until your benefit amount is used up or the program year ends.
  • If your heat is included in your rent and is NOT subsidized, assistance will be provided in the form of heating vouchers issued in amounts of up to $315 each month until your benefit amount is used up or the program year ends.
