Serving Special Needs

People with special needs, such as frail elders, youth aging out of foster care, homeless, and people with disabilities may have difficulties finding housing that is safe, affordable, and permanent. They may also require housing that is matched with accessible support services. Many, if not most, of these people with special needs are low or extremely low income (ELI).

The lack of affordable housing has many impacts, among them costs to our health care and criminal justice systems, as well as preventing individuals with special needs from exiting facilities and living inclusively in the community.

Florida Housing’s Link Strategy – Link to Permanent Housing

Link enhances the ability of extremely low-income (ELI) households with special needs to access and retain affordable rental housing in their communities. Florida Housing requires developers to provide a specified percentage of a Development’s ELI units for special needs households receiving community based supportive services who are referred by a designated supportive services agency in the community where the Development is located.
