F. State Policy Solutions to National Senior Housing Challenges

National challenges sometimes require state-level solutions, especially in the affordable senior housing sector. This session will highlight state and local efforts to find new ways to develop affordable housing and services for older adults. Presenters will spark your imagination with examples of such innovations as securing waivers to include Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) partners in the housing development process and incorporating service coordination in tax credit development budgets. You’ll have the opportunity to review innovations implemented by three Massachusetts-based affordable housing projects that leveraged PACE waivers to reduce Low-Income Housing Tax Credit rents. Join a brainstorming exercise aimed at identifying potential allies who could help you meet the housing needs of older adults.
