Housing Projects and Initiatives
The Council has funded and been a leader in a number of projects and initiatives aimed at helping individuals with developmental disabilities have access to and use of housing and housing supports and services in their communities, including assistance related to renting, owning, or modifying an apartment or home. Projects have ranged from working with homebuilders to build accessible or "visitable homes" with minimum accessibility requirements to educating banks and lenders about home ownership for people with disabilities to education around how people with disabilities are impacted by Fair Housing legislation. For more information about any of these initiatives, contact us.
