Housing Support

Blue Earth County Provider Guide to Housing Support and Blue Earth County Application for new providers. 

Housing support is a State-funded program that provides a monthly income supplement to pay for room and board for seniors and adults with disabilities who have low income.  The program aims to prevent or reduce homelessness and institutionalization.  The amount of a Housing Support payment is based on a federal and state standard of what an individual would need, at a minimum, to live in the community.  In some cases, Housing Support may pay a supplemental amount to the basic rate.  Licensed or registered settings that can qualify for a Housing Support Agreement can include adult foster care homes, boarding and lodging, supervised living settings, non-certified boarding care homes, housing with additional services establishments and other assisted living, and long-term homeless supportive housing.

Please refer to the Blue Earth County Provider Guide to learn more and complete the formal Blue Earth County Application.  Specific questions about the Housing Support Program and application process can be directed to Jackie Bobholz at (507) 304-4191.
