Community Housing Programs

Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Program

VCHC works with the Department of Health to administer the NHTD Housing Subsidy program. The program was started to assist NHTD waiver participants with financial assistance with their housing needs. It was recognized that participants need help securing affordable and accessible housing to enable them to return to or remain in the community with the support of other waiver services.

Only a NHTD participant can be considered for the NHTD Housing Subsidy program. There are no income thresholds for participation in this program however, the entire household combined income will be used to calculate the tenant portion of payments.

Eligibility Requirements:

Eligibility for the NHTD waiver is determined through a network of Regional Resource Development Centers (RRDC). The local RRDC for Saratoga County is Southern Adirondack Independent Living Center, 71 Glenwood Avenue, Queensbury, NY 12804.

  • Individuals must be capable of living in the community with needed assistance from available informal supports, non-Medicaid supports and/or Medicaid State Plan services and be in need of one or more NHTD waiver services
  • Be eligible for nursing home level of care

  • Be at least 18 years of age or older and be considered part of an aggregate group that can be cared for at less cost in the community than a similar group in a nursing home
