S1E90 - 20220906 - Tuesday Topics - Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Section

September 6, 2022

Last week, as usual, we bit off more than we could chew. Essentially, we did not have the opportunity to discuss Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Section

8 housing and homelessness. These are all components that impact people who are blind or have low vision. We hope that some of you who have dealt with subsidized housing will call in and tell us about your experiences. Many of us qualify for subsidized housing. How equal is our access to this system. Is the system accessible. Does state and Federal law need to be strengthened or do housing employees need to be better trained? There are clear rules governing some elements of access for people who use wheel chairs or have mobility problems. What kinds of accessibility options ought to exist in housing for people who are blind or have low vision? What is ACB doing about this and what else should we do?
