The ability for people with disabilities to access afordable housing is crucial to the development of strong inclusive communities. We urge you to take action today!
Ask your Representative to Vote for the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act (H.R. 2895)
On Wednesday, October 10, the House of Representatives will take up H.R. 2895, the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act. The purpose of this bill is to construct, rehabilitate, and preserve over one million units of affordable housing during the next 10 years. Much of this housing will be targeted to individuals with extremely low incomes, including those receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
The disability community, including The Arc and UCP, has strongly supported the creation of a national housing trust fund because increased production will alleviate the housing affordability crisis facing people with disabilities as well as increase the amount of wheelchair accessible housing across America.
