You probably would only be able to afford a subsidized rental if you want something decent to live in and not a slum. There is a long waiting list for these - six months at least. Some of them are backed up for years.
Positive: 100 %

SSI won't be enough to afford to rent a house and buy cleaning supplies or anything else.
Positive: 0 %

Same kind of houses you can rent in Chicago and Dallas.

housing is super expensive for someone on SSI. You're not supposed to spend more than 35% of your income/benefits on housing, that's the general rule. so that makes it hard to rent a home anywhere. And then you'd have the application fee and deposit. But then you say you wish to move too.

Where do people get the idea disability is low income? You could easily be receiving 50k a year. Disability payments are based on the persons working income. You can rent any kind of house you want. No one will discriminate and say you can't rent it because you are disabled.

That is going to be very difficult to do anywhere yet in colorado. Most landlords want your income to be 3x the rent. And SSI goes up to $721 a month, so you would qualify for a apartment for about $240 a month. You might try renting a room, but even at $240 for a room will be difficult. You might try subsidized housing, but usually you have to be a state resident for a year to apply and once you do the wait lists are a couple years long.
