Opportunity for Advocates: Upcoming Report on Housing Crisis for People with Disabilities

On June 20th, the Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc. and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities will release Priced Out in 2010: The Housing Crisis for People with Disabilities. The report provides state and local housing market data highlighting the nation’s housing crisis for people receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI). For example, in 2010 average rents for one bedroom apartments had increased more than 60% since 1998, and exceeded 112% of the average SSI benefit. State and local advocates who are working on housing policy are encouraged to consider doing outreach to local media and policymakers in advance of the report.  For more information, including a sample press release and fact sheet, contact Gina Schaak at gschaak@tacinc.org.
