Ohio has an aging population; currently, 15 percent of Ohioans are aged 65 and older. By 2040, Ohioans 65 and older will represent nearly a quarter of the state’s population. Older Ohioans of all income levels experience housing issues, such as being cost-burdened, which means a person spends over 30 percent of their income on housing costs. Other housing issues facing this population may include living with incomplete kitchen or plumbing facilities or living in overcrowded housing units. OHFA continues to work to ensure that more housing is available for older Ohioans by prioritizing senior housing developments in our Annual Plan and Qualified Allocation Plan, which helps determine which affordable housing projects OHFA will fund. For example, in 2014, OHFA provided funding to Southwick Manor, a senior housing development in Brunswick, Ohio. This property provides 54 units of housing and a computer center, fitness center and media room for residents. OHFA provided nearly $2 million to help develop this property.
