The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sponsors a variety of housing counseling agencies throughout Florida that can assist senior citizens with issues such as finding low-cost housing. Rather than approving specific facilities, the department offers Florida residents help finding affordable rental properties and home loans, according to HUD.
Three primary HUD housing assistance programs are available to senior citizens throughout the country, explains Senior Living. The Housing Choice Voucher Program helps eligible seniors with rent costs, and the Homeownership Voucher program assists qualified seniors with the approved financing to purchase a home. HUD's multifamily subsidized housing programs provide rent assistance to seniors who are able to live independently in a limited-assistance group home.
