Obama Admin Allocates $150M to Housing for Individuals With Disabilities
Housing initiatives in New York for individuals with disabilities are underfunded and options are limited. Those options that are available do not always offer the accommodations that individuals with disabilities may require. The viability of Section 8 housing and whether it even still exists has been a big question mark. Under a new initiative, however, the Obama administration is allocating $150 million for improvements to housing initiatives across the country for individuals with disabilities. Exactly how that money will be divided among the states and when actual changes will take effect remains unclear.
