HUD releases report supplement on housing situation of people with disabilities

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released “2009 Worst Case Housing Needs of People with Disabilities,” a supplement to its” Worst Case Housing Needs 2009: Report to Congress” that details critical housing needs for families that include one or more people with disabilities.  “Worst case households” are very low-income renters who do not receive government housing assistance and who either pay more than one-half of their income for rent or live in severely inadequate conditions, or both.  In 2009, there were about one million households who met the definition of “worst case.” Read the report at http://www.huduser.org/Publications/pdf/WorstCaseDisabilities03_2011.pdf
