Affordable and Accessible Housing for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Mosaic has a priority to provide quality, affordable and accessible housing to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By partnering with federal, state and local funding sources Mosaic is able to provide quality homes at a reduced cost to the organization and tenants. Mosaic is then able to direct more resources to other needed supports and resources for the people we serve.

Mosaic builds low income units in residential neighborhoods. We have built group homes, duplexes and multi-plex buildings that are close to grocery stores, bus stops and other community services.

People who apply to live in Mosaic housing do not have to receive other services from Mosaic and may receive services from other providers. All residents must qualify according to established income guidelines. Income must be below the low or very low-income guidelines for the county of residence.

Contact Mosaic for more information or to receive an application.

Housing Partners and Rent

Mosaic partners with several programs to provide affordable housing. The amount of rent and utilities a qualifying resident will pay depends upon the type of housing and the funding source used to build the home.  Partner programs include:

  • HUD Section 811
  • Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund
  • Affordable Housing Program
  • HOME
  • Low-Income Housing Tax Credit

Contact Mosaic to determine if any Mosaic housing is available through these programs in your area.
