Housing plus services is an exciting component of affordable senior housing, offering low-income seniors more opportunity to remain independent and in their own homes. 

LeadingAge is working with HUD and Congress to create more opportunities for expanding and researching housing with services. This section provides updates on these national efforts as well as examples of LeadingAge members who are implementing successful housing plus services models in their communities. 

In addition, the LeadingAge LTSS Center has been studying the role that housing plus services could play in meeting the growing need for health and long-term services and supports among low-income elders. You can check out the LTSS Center's work in housing plus services here.
