The Kelsey & Urban Institute launch: Disability-Forward Housing Future – A Needs Definition and Case for Impact

The Kelsey partners with Urban Institute on a project entitled: Disability-Forward Housing Future – A Needs Definition and Case for Impact.

At key milestones, this project is being guided by a pilot Community Advisory Board, which you can learn more about in this post.
