Affordable housing is a basic human need that many older adults and people with disabilities struggle to find and keep.  This NASUAD curriculum is designed to give an overview of the types of affordable housing that are available to older adults and people with disabilities, and was written in association with Leading Age, an organization that focuses on advocacy, education and applied research for various services, supports and housing solutions for seniors, children and people with special needs. 

This class provides participants with a historical perspective and a deeper understanding of the Independent Living Movement. Participants will learn about the role and services provided by Centersfor Independent Living (CILs) and Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs), and gain practical skills that will help them strengthen and promote independence and community living for people with disabilities.
