Navigating the Path to Independent Housing (2 part series) (PEATC)
October 20, 2020, 7pm - Session 1: Housing Resources for Virginians with Developmental Disabilities
Do you know what “living with supports independently” means? It means that, regardless of the level of communication, physical, medical and behavioral support people need, people with developmental disabilities can live independently in their own housing with quality supports. Join us to learn about the financial assistance programs that make housing affordable for people with developmental disabilities, including Housing Choice Vouchers, the State Rental Assistance Program, Virginia’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit programs and Flexible Funding.
October 27, 2020, 7pm Session 2: Preparing for the Transition to Housing
Planning is the key to successfully living with supports independently. This session will review the major steps that individuals with disabilities must take to prepare to "make a move" from their current housing setting to living in their own rental home with supports.
