Housing – New “Priced Out” Housing Affordability Report Released

The Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Housing Task Force have released “Priced Out: The Housing Affordability Crisis for People with Disabilities.” This biennial report documents the nationwide housing affordability crisis experienced by people with disabilities. In 2016, millions of adults with disabilities living solely on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) found that renting even a modest one-bedroom unit in their community would require nearly all of their monthly income. In hundreds of higher-cost housing markets, the average rent for such basic units is actually much greater than the entirety of an SSI monthly payment. As outlined in Priced Out, proven solutions to the crisis exist. Visit the Priced Out web site to view the report, summaries, and an interactive tool to help you learn about the affordable housing crisis for people with disabilities in your own state and community.
