Recovery Resources for Housing
Housing is a concern for most individuals following a disaster, regardless of their health status or capabilities.
Individuals with disabilities often require accessible and accommodated housing, but accessible housing after a disaster is often in short supply. Housing barriers for individuals with disabilities may include:
- Loss of home,
- Accessibility damage to the home, and
- Finding accommodating, accessible housing.
