People with Disabilities Living in the US Face Urgent Barriers to Housing

Disabled people living in households across the United States are experiencing disproportionate rates of housing insecurity due to a unique set of barriers and federal assistance programs are failing to meet their needs. The Kelsey and Urban Institute are proud to release this national needs assessment that quantifies the number of disabled people impacted by barriers of housing affordability, accessibility, and service-enriched, quality community-based housing. From the 2021 Current Population Survey, the research explores the current characteristics and living situations of housed disabled people, as well as their ability to access federal housing assistance and other support programs.
