CLE - Disabilities and Affordable Housing 101

Hosted by the Legal Rights of Persons with Disabilities Committee

"Being part of the community and living as independently as possible are among the most important values and goals shared by people with disabilities, their families, and advocates."

When it comes to finding housing, persons with disabilities face a frustrating array of barriers. The three most common include: affordability, accessibility and availability. They also may encounter discrimination.

This CLE program will provide a fundamental look at affordable housing issues for persons with disabilities in Philadelphia.

Featured speaker, Brooke Schipporeit, will provide an overview of the following:

  • Self-Determination Housing Project of PA and Regional Housing Coordinator program
  • Types of affordable housing and how to access them
  • Fair Housing Act and making a complaint
  • Reasonable modifications and accommodations
  • Resources in Philadelphia
  • Tutorials of a few different affordable housing search tools

    Join the Legal Rights of Disability Committee for their first meeting and CLE of 2017 and learn how to better advocate for affordable housing for your clients with disabilities.
