Housing Assistance

The Division of Developmental Disabilities believes that community living is the cornerstone of an independent, integrated life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In support of this, the Division funds rental subsidies for individuals living in provider-managed settings, as well as those renting from private landlords. 

Individuals who receive a Division rental subsidy are required to contribute a certain amount of their income toward rent.  The remaining rent amount – up to a State-established maximum for the county or zip code – is covered by the rental subsidy, which is paid directly to the provider or landlord. The Supportive Housing Connection administers the Division’s rental subsidies.
