As housing advocates for people with disabilities, the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Housing Task Force (CCD Housing Task Force) and the Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc. (TAC) are very concerned about the lack of progress to expand affordable housing for people with disabilities. To help understand these issues more clearly, TAC and the CCD Housing Task Force set out to assess and document what is and isn’t working in local communities to expand affordable housing opportunities for people with disabilities. The purpose of our work, which was partially funded through a grant from Fannie Mae (previously known as the Federal National Mortgage Association), was three-fold:
1. To document the barriers which have constrained the disability community’s housing efforts;
2. To identify existing examples of communities that have moved most successfully towards “best practices” to expand both homeownership and rental housing options for people with disabilities; and
3. To assess the need for a comprehensive program of housing technical assistance targeted to the disability community. (TAC)
