Mission

The CCD Housing Task Force works with Congress and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to increase access to decent, safe and affordable housing for all people with disabilities and to protect the rights guaranteed under the Fair Housing Act.

The CCD Housing Task Force also works collaboratively with the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) to produce Priced Out, a study of the severe housing affordability problems of people with disabilities.

Housing Task Force
FR-6286-I-01 Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent-11-08-2021
The CCD Housing Task Force writes to request that HUD immediately adopt policies that will prevent evictions and ensure housing stability among its residents. HUD’s recently published Interim Final Rule (IFR), Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Nonpayment of Rent, makes an attempt to protect families but does not ensure that HUD tenants – who are primarily African American and Latinx households with extremely low incomes, people with disabilities, and older adults – have access to federal emergency rental assistance. We are calling on HUD to use its authority to act more comprehensively to prevent evictions by amending the Interim Final Rule (IFR).
