My mother resides right now in HUD housing located in Dearborn, Michigan, but we want to try getting her into a similar housing situation in Ga so that she can be near me.

One of the easiest and least expensive options is to invite the senior citizen to live with you in your home. If you have an extra bedroom, this can be a good solution that will not break the bank. They can live in your house with you and you will be able to keep an eye on them at all times...

An assisted living community is a good choice, but it's not for everyone. I think it's perfect for seniors who are looking to enjoy an independent lifestyle, while also having access to more living support.
Before choosing any facility, I think it's important to consider the needs and preference of the seniors

HUD is federal but state run and most HUD programs require in order to get benefits to be a resident of the state.You will need to establish her residency in Georgia in order for her to get into any supported housing program. There likely is housing out there for her once you do that. I'd contact your local Agency on Aging to get a list of HUD housing.

Resdiency would mean having a state issued ID or drivers license, local bank account with her SS direct deposited into it, mailing address, voter registration, etc. If you are DPOA you can do most of this for her and use your address.

The sticky part will be if she owns any property in MI and should need to go on or transfer her Medicaid from MI to GA. I looked into moving my mom from her NH in TX to my state but she has property in TX and as long as she is a resident of TX the property is an exempt non-countable asset for Medicaid. For that and other reasons (she is now in a well run NH facility and really good gerontologists group) decided she would stay in TX forever. Your mom doesn't have a house, so that isn't an issue for you all but if she has a car it needs to be sold or registered in GA. Good luck.
