Supportive Housing




At IHDA, we believe every person, regardless of illness or limitation, should have the freedom to choose to live as independently as possible in settings appropriate to their own personal needs and preferences. That is why we commit significant resources to the development of permanent affordable housing that offers elective supportive services that allow residents to achieve long-term housing stability. In fact, 2,200 units (15%) of IHDA’s production over the last five years has been supportive housing.

If you are interested in developing supportive housing but don’t know where to begin, check out the tools and resources in the side bar for assistance.
