2019 Senior Housing Statistics
1 in 3 Seniors in the US qualify for subsidized housing
Dr. Laverne Joseph, president and CEO of LeadingAge member Retirement Housing Foundation, which operates 99 HUD 202 buildings, with 5,562 apartments, said, “We have 12,255 persons on our HUD 202 waiting lists. That is two and a half times as many persons as we have apartments. With 10 thousand persons turning 65 every day in the U.S, and many of them with minimal savings or little or no pensions, demand is skyrocketing."
