Congregate Facilities Operating Cost Program
Source of Funding: General Fund (operating subsidies only)
Process: Based on annual appropriations, any sponsor of state-assisted congregate housing may apply for a congregate services operating subsidy grant to offset the costs of congregate services not paid for by the tenants. All tenants will be required to pay an amount toward congregate services costs, based on their net income after allowances and after they pay minimum rent, in accordance with a formula approved by the Commissioner. Congregate services charges, together with any available congregate subsidy grant or other available income, shall generate sufficient income to meet the costs of the congregate services. The program also provides rental assistance for those tenants who pay no more than 30% of their adjusted gross income toward rent.
