Rent is ridiculously expensive in and around my city. Are there programs to help you subsidize and afford rent prices?

I am 31 years old, single, and live in my family home. Before you judge me, I chose to live with parents because my mother is extremely ill and needed my constant attention at home. Now that I'm getting older, my aunt has decided to take over and live in our home as well. After researching rent prices, I find... show more I am 31 years old, single, and live in my family home. Before you judge me, I chose to live with parents because my mother is extremely ill and needed my constant attention at home. Now that I'm getting older, my aunt has decided to take over and live in our home as well. After researching rent prices, I find them beyond my budget. A simple one-story apartment in my city costs almost $800. With my car note, health insurance, car insurance, and high student loan payments......it is almost impossible to afford that unless I date and become serious with someone who will share the cost. I am happily single and want to stay that way. Are there any programs out there can help lower or subsize rent costs?
