In issuing the proclamation, the President said, “(W)e press forward, renewing our dedication to embrace diversity, end discrimination, remove barriers, and uphold the rights, dignity, and equal opportunity of all people.” It is anticipated that the President will send the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to the Senate for ratification in the near future.
The TAC Resource Center seeks to expand new and innovative
supportive housing approaches and models which link affordable
and accessible permanent housing resources with community-based
supports and services for people with significant and long-term
disabilities. The site highlights the new integrated supportive
housing approach recently authorized by Congress within the
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) Section 811 Supportive Housing for
Persons with Disabilities program. Visit the
TAC Resource Center
to learn more and sign up for the email list.
Section 811 Capital Advances will provide $137 million to assist very
low-income persons with disabilities through 92 projects in 34
states. An additional $12.6 million will be available for project
rental assistance contracts. Most of the housing supported through
the Section 811 Program will be newly constructed, typically small
apartment buildings, group homes for three to four persons, or
condominium units that are integrated into the larger community.
Residents will pay 30 percent of their adjusted income for rent
and the federal government will pay the rest. Visit the
HUD Announcement Page to learn more.
