Subsidized and Affordable Rental Housing for People with Disabilities

For people with disabilities who are able to live independently, this grid provides an overview of the Massachusetts options.

For people with disabilities who are seniors, there are typically more housing options and shorter wait lists.  Seniors with disabilities will often qualify for all of the usual options plus public housing authority units for those age 60 and up and federally supported units for those age 62 and up.

For people with disabilities who need a certain level of support services built in to their housing in order to live in the community might evaluate the supports available through Medicaid State Plan Services  (Group Adult Foster Care, adult family care stipends, personal care attendant), Department of Developmental Disabilities (group homes, shared living, adult supports),  the Department of Mental Health (group homes) or Department of Public Health (rest homes).  Note that there are some units of affordable assisted living (typically Group Adult Foster Care funded).


Affordable Homeownership in Groton

When Affordable Homeownership units are offered for sale in Groton, information will be listed here. Units offered may be New Construction or Resale. MGL Chapter 40B aims to promote affordable housing for households earning 80% or less than the area median income. Usually, a household will have to have a moderate level of income – close to 80% area median income — in order to afford to purchase affordable homeownership units.

If you have questions, please contact the Housing Coordinator.
