9 WHY PACE? Participants stay in familiar surroundings
Participants maintain a certain self-sufficiency Participants maintain a maximum level of physical, social and cognitive function

10 PACE and Housing Role with housing – Nearly all PACE programs (95%) serve participants who reside in senior housing. Participants residing in senior housing –Nearly half (45%) of serve participants that reside in 5-10 senior housing buildings, and most (63%) are located between 5 and 10 miles from their PACE center.

11 PACE and Housing Ownership of senior housing – Less than one-third (29%) of PACE programs own either affordable senior housing or assisted living units; of these, most include funds from the HUD Section 202 program. Co-location with senior housing – Nearly one-third (32%) of PACE programs co-locate at least one of their centers with senior housing.

14 Affordable Housing for Low Income Elderly
Affordability: residents usually pay 30% of income for shelter and utilities

15 Affordable Housing for Low Income Elderly Continued
Sources of Affordable Housing: Federal Public Housing - Elderly Housing Projects Number of PHA’s in NC Number of elderly specific projects Public Housing – Section 8 Vouchers Number of Section 8 agencies in NC Number of vouchers limited, long waiting lists

16 Affordable Housing for Low Income Elderly Continued
For persons whose only income is Supplemental Security Income of $710, rent + utilities should not exceed $213. Supplements or subsidies are needed to make the difference to rents of modest but decent housing - HUD has established “Fair Market Rents” for each county, which is supposed to represent the rent at the 40% range of rents.

17 Affordable Housing for Low Income Elderly Continued
Private Non-profit Housing Rent Supplement Projects (Section 236) Older projects, many being phased out Project Based Section 8 Projects Older projects were Federal allocations Newer project must obtain vouchers from PHA’s limited supply, through attrition as vouchers are returned Section Capital Advances and Project Rental Assistance Contract (PRAC units) Number of projects/units in NC Program has ended capital advances, is slated to provide rental assistance units to Housing Finance Agencies.
