Financially-challenged senior citizens don't have to worry about becoming homeless anymore, as the government is giving out more than $17 million to ensure that they remain properly sheltered.
The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has recently announced the release of “pre-development" grants to senior housing development organizations. These are private, non-profit organizations dedicated to building housing units for the elderly.
The support being given by the government to our elders is a way of showing how much it values everything they have done. Since there are many senior citizens out there who don't earn enough to provide a decent home for themselves, something had to be done to help them live in an environment suitable for their various physical conditions.
Senior housing development organizations are doing a noble job by providing affordable housing for the elderly. They also make sure that elders have access to cleaning, transportation, cooking, and other services to make everyday living easy for them.
As of the moment, housing development organizations from thirty states will receive the grants from the HUD. The money given out varies, as an individual grant can amount to $400,000 while single sponsor or partner organizations can get as much as $800,000.
This grant distribution is backed by the HUD's Supportive Housing for the Elderly Section. The government is not requiring such housing development organizations to return the money, as long as they serve the elderly for forty years.
The elderly deserve not only heartfelt gratitude and respect for the things they have sacrificed and done for the benefit of future generations, but also a decent home to keep them safe and protected at all times.
