Adult Group Home Assistance (18-64 years old)
Washoe County Group Home Assistance helps cover “Room and Board” costs for individuals ages 18-64 years old who are homeless AND are unable to reside in a shelter setting due to physical limitations. In order to qualify for assistance, individuals must meet all financial and non-financial requirements for their household size and be a Washoe County resident.
Per the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 428.020 Determination of County Residence: “The county of residence of a person is the county in which the person is physically present with the intent to reside, at least for an indefinite period. The county of residence of a person placed in institutional care is the county of residence of that person before the person was placed in institutional care.”
If an individual accepts County assistance, all of the patient’s monthly income (minus $149 monthly personal allowance) is expected to be applied toward the cost of care and paid directly to the facility.
