Group Homes & Corporate Adult Foster Care

Group Residential Housing - GRH
GRH is a state- funded program that provides at a minimum, room and board for adults who live in certain authorized group living arrangements. It is a program for adults with disabilities/disabling conditions who can’t support themselves. The goal of GRH is to prevent or reduce homelessness or institutionalization. GRH is unique in that the income supplement is not paid directly to the recipient.
