Summary: The Housing for Everyone program chooses a different housing-related theme every year. In 2015, the grants focused on affordable housing for seniors. Applications must highlight the ways in which funding will create new units focused on the needs of the elderly, including access to medical and health services; proximity to shopping, community, and transportation services; and adaptability to the changing needs of aging populations. In 2014, the focus was Housing for the Future, which supported programs that encourage the creation or preservation of rental housing units for families with children. The 2017 focus will be announced later this year.
