The Housing workgroup focuses on the housing needs of low-income seniors and people with disabilities.

Policy needs:

  • Lack of housing affordable to extremely low-income people (those on SSI, for example)
  • Lack of accessible housing
  • Lack of emergency shelter for seniors and people with disabilities

Goals:

  1. Protect and expand funding for and access to housing for low-income seniors and people with disabilities at the federal, state and local levels.
  2. Ensure that housing units have basic accessible features
  3. Ensure that seniors and people with disabilities live in integrated community housing, rather than institutions.

Workgroup chair:
