Housing is never cheap, and when you’re a senior on a fixed income who may have medical bills and more to cover, it can get downright expensive. It’s not uncommon for seniors to find themselves spending the majority of their retirement savings on rent.

One option for seniors looking for a home to call their own is to turn to a housing program for assistance. These programs can vary greatly, but they generally provide subsidies or other forms of financial aid to ensure that seniors have a place to live without bankrupting themselves for those who otherwise might not be able to do that. Different housing programs have different requirements, but if you’re struggling to put a roof over your head, odds are good that you’re eligible for at least some kind of housing program.
