On September 29, 2015, HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) convened a panel of housing and health experts to better understand the challenges and strategies related to housing and service coordination for low-income seniors in rural America. Experts were invited to offer observations about the needs, barriers, and experiences with aging in place in diverse rural areas and discuss the feasibility of an enhanced service coordination pilot to support independence for aging seniors in rural communities.
