The Group Residential Housing (GRH) program pays for room and board for seniors and adults with disabilities who have low incomes. The program aims to reduce and prevent people from living in institutions or becoming homeless.
There are more than 5,765 licensed or registered settings that qualify as group residential housing. About 4,260 of those are adult foster care homes. Others include board and lodging facilities, supervised living facilities, noncertified boarding care homes, housing with additional services establishments and other assisted living settings.
