Training:  Elderly Housing Alternatives

Training OverviewThe aging of our population, coupled with a scarcity of funds, have created the challenge of how best to provide housing opportunities for the elderly population, especially how best to accommodate them in their existing homes.  This training will provide alternatives to housing construction using IHBG funds, while also describing other funding sources available to provide services not allowable with IHBG funds.  Training and discussion topics will include:

  • Aging statistics – needs of the elderly during aging process
  • Addressing elder needs through design modifications in new housing; making homes “age-friendly”
  • Addressing elder needs through rehab accessibility modifications
  • The limitations of IHBG funds in terms of allowability – restrictions on using for services
  • Fair Housing Rules – Reasonable Modifications
  • Alternative funding sources expanding possible uses

Trainer:  to be determined (contracting with NAIHC)
