Save HUD 202

Save HUD 202

HUD’s Section 202 Housing for the Elderly program brings affordable housing with service coordination to almost 400,000 very low-income older adults. A large and rapidly expanding population of low-income older adults faces the dual challenges of finding affordable, quality housing that can accommodate changing needs as we grow older.

Unfortunately, the realities of federal funding constraints and budget caps mean that preserving existing affordable housing is under threat and that expanding housing assistance to more older adults seems very difficult. Today, millions of older adults eligible for affordable housing do not have access to it because the programs are at capacity.

The goals for this campaign are simple: preserve every 202 home we have, and bring affordable housing to every older adult who needs it.
