Priced Out in 2010: The Housing Crisis for People with Disabilities

Priced Out is published every two years by the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Housing Task Force to call public attention to this unrelenting housing crisis – which remains largely hidden from public view. Across the nation, millions of people with the most significant and long-term disabilities whose income is based on SSI simply do not have enough money to pay for housing in the community. Priced Out in 2010 illuminates the underlying cause of this hidden housing crisis by comparing the monthly income of people with disabilities receiving SSI to local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Market Rents for the Housing Choice Voucher program. Simply stated, in 2010, there was not one state or community in the nation where a person with a disability receiving SSI could afford to rent modest rental housing without a permanent rental subsidy.
