Group Residential Housing (GRH)

Group Residential Housing (GRH) is a state funded income supplement program that pays for room and board costs for low income people with disabilities or elderly persons who have been placed in a licensed setting such as:

  • Adult Foster Care
  • Board and Lodge
  • Supervised or Assisted Living Facilities

The GRH asset limit is $2,000. Assets include money in savings and checking accounts, stocks/bonds, most retirement accounts, and some life insurance.

There is no longer a monthly gross income limit for GRH. The amount of rent one pays in a GRH facility is based on the type and amount of income received each month. If you pay out-of-pocket for items related to your disability and those items are necessary in order for you to work, that expense may reduce the amount of rent you are responsible to pay.

To find out if you are eligible for the GRH program, contact your local county human services agency. To learn more about GRH, see the Department of Human Services website.
