The "Value Added" of Linking Publicly Assisted Housing for Low-Income Older Adults with Enhanced Services: A Literature Syntheses and Environmental Scan. Summary of Findings


The studies examined a variety of different program models, providing a range of program characteristics to consider. However, this means that findings are not comparable across studies. Some of the key issues addressed in the literature that are relevant for designing a demonstration are summarized below.

Further details on the included studies are provided in the appendices. Appendix A provides summaries of the findings from publicly assisted housing with enhanced services programs. We paid particular attention to findings from large demonstration programs that resulted in lengthy reports examining many issues (Congregate Housing Services Program [CHSP], Hope for Elderly independence [HOPE IV]). Appendix B summarizes findings from similar programs in other settings. Appendix C provides summaries of findings from workgroups.
