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 the NHTD Housing Subsidy program, however the entire household’s combined income will be used to calculate the tenant portion of payments.
Eligibility for the NHTD waiver is determined through a network of Regional Resource Development Centers (RRDC) - the local RRDC for Saratoga County is Sothern Adirondack Independent Living Center, 71 Glenwood Ave. Queensbury, NY 12804.
