Housing Resource Guide

In 2016 WIHD published the Housing Resource Guide. The material below is taken from the Guide, which is designed to help people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, their families, their service coordinators and provider agency staff and advocates to negotiate the housing process from beginning to closing. The full report is linked below.

Housing Resource Guide The Housing Resource Guide begins with an overview of housing options in the state and how those have been shaped. We then set out paths and options that may be available to an individual and their family. The Guide also lists the “system based” resources that will affect an individual’s housing options. These refer to governmental subsidies and incentives to home builders that will lead to the creation of more housing stock. The guide describes the housing options in the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) certified system and other state systems. Click Here to Download the WIHD - Housing Resource Guide
