Opportunities within the disability housing market

Abstract: With 14.2 percent of the population over the age of 5 having a disability,[1] finding viable housing options that are universally designed and constructed to be accessible for people with disabilities is an ongoing challenge in Texas. And promoting housing solutions and partnerships that can benefit this growing population has become critical, not just for Texas but for the entire country. Not only is the need enormous, but federal government resources that traditionally have funded housing for people with disabilities have evolved and retrenched in the wake of the financial crisis. As a result, innovation, partnerships and leverage are vital in tackling this housing challenge.
