Congregate Housing Services Program

Designed to assist older people and younger people with disabilities to live independently in their apartments, the CHSP provides housing combined with professional service coordination and supportive services, such as housekeeping, companion, personal emergency response, transportation, and medication management. CHSP aims to encourage maximum resident independence in a home environment, improve management’s ability to assess eligible residents’ service needs, and ensure delivery of needed services.
 
The Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP) is funded and administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in partnership with the Department of Rehabilitation Services State Unit on Aging (DORS-SUA).
 
CHSP housing sites are located in the Eastern and Western regions of the State. To learn more about the program, please call Senior Resources (Eastern Connecticut Area) Agency on Aging at (860) 887-3561, or the Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging at (203) 757-5449.
