The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sponsors two programs to provide affordable housing to low-income seniors. The programs, Section 202 housing and The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), both provide incentives for senior living communities to make their units affordable and available for low-income seniors. Other than their lower price, these affordable senior communities should offer standard care services for their level of care as regulated by the state. Amenities and lifestyle services, however, will vary greatly between different communities.
There are 261 low-income affordable senior housing options to choose from in the Chicago area. Explore our listings to compare the amenities, floor plans, and services available at each residence.
