Federal law prevents A Place for Mom from referring families to certain senior housing communities if the family desires to use public funds like Medicaid for housing costs. We have compiled tools to assist families with conducting their own independent search for their public funding needs. There are government resources available to help with the search for options. A few are listed below:

  • Administration for Community Living (www.acl.gov): ACL brings together the efforts and achievements of the Administration on Aging, the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and the HHS Office on Disability to serve as the Federal agency responsible for increasing access to community supports, while focusing attention and resources on the unique needs of older Americans and people with disabilities across the lifespan.

  • Eldercare.gov (www.eldercare.gov): This helpful website offers fact sheets, booklets and links to federal websites.

  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (www.hud.gov/): Here you can find information on affordable housing for seniors and rental assistance, among other things.

  • The National Council on Aging (www.ncoa.org): Provides a list of federal and state assistance programs.

  • Department of Veterans Affairs (www.va.gov): Veteran’s benefits provide those who have served their country (some benefits extend to their spouses as well) financial assistance during their retirement years. To learn if you are eligible, visit this website and review the information under “Veteran Services.”

  • Disability.gov (www.disability.gov): A comprehensive guide on disability programs and services, including Social Security benefits and affordable, accessible housing. The website provides links to more than 14,000 resources from federal, state and local government agencies; academic institutions; and nonprofit organizations.
