According to a recent Ithaca Housing Authority press release, the New York State Department of Health gave a $500,000 two-year grant to the IHA (Ithaca Housing Authority) specifically for senior supportive housing and its related programs.

The funds originate from the state’s Medicaid Redesign Team Supportive Housing Initiative.  It will be used to expand the nursing case manager program and modify 50 (of the 250) units in the Titus Towers complex.

The Nursing Case Manager Program focuses on caring for elderly, low-income residents and the building modifications include the outfitting of apartments with walk-in showers.

There are currently about 250 disabled and/or elderly residents in Titus Towers, a public housing building maintained by the IHA.
