What The Arc Is Doing
People with IDD have the right to live in accessible, affordable housing in the community. The Arc advocates to protect and improve federal housing laws and regulations and to ensure adequate funding for federal housing programs that assist people with IDD and their families.
Our Public Policy Goals
The Arc’s Public Policy Goals include many recommendations for improving access to affordable housing in the community.
Our Coalition Work
The CCD Housing Task Force, which The Arc co-chairs, works with Congress and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to increase access to decent, safe, and affordable housing for all people with disabilities and to protect the rights guaranteed under the Fair Housing Act. The Arc is also a member of the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) and a partner in Opportunity Starts at Home.
