New program set to offer housing help for disabled Californians

The state is trying to move more disabled Californians out of institutionalized care and into the community by offering rental assistance, officials announced Tuesday.

The new program will help low-income disabled Californians become more independent, healthcare officials said. Federal funding will provide rental assistance for 335 units, according to the Department of Health Care Services.

The help is available for disabled Californians between the ages of 18 and 62 who qualify for Medi-Cal long-term care services.

The program is being offered by the Department of Health Care Services, the Department of Housing and Community Development, and the California Housing Finance Agency.
