Priced Out is published every two years by the
Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the
Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD)
Housing Task Force to call public attention to this
unrelenting housing crisis – which remains largely
hidden from public view. Across the nation, millions
of people with the most significant and long-term
disabilities whose income is based on SSI simply do
not have enough money to pay for housing in the
community.

Priced Out in 2010 illuminates the underlying cause
of this hidden housing crisis by comparing the
monthly income of people with disabilities receiving
SSI to local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) Fair Market Rents for the
Housing Choice Voucher program. Simply stated, in
2010, there was not one state or community in the
nation where a person with a disability receiving SSI
could afford to rent modest rental housing without a
permanent rental subsidy.
