Olmstead Housing Subsidy (OHS)
The Olmstead Housing Subsidy (OHS) is a rental subsidy for seniors and people with chronic disabilities. It helps seniors and people with disabilities leave long term skilled nursing facilities, or prevent nursing home placement, by providing access to private housing in the community. Participants in the program will also have access to supportive services to ensure that community-based services are in place, and that they know and understand their rights and responsibilities. The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects, such as senior housing.
