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.
