Housing

Across the state, there is a scarcity of housing across socio-economic levels, complicating stable living conditions. Additional barriers limit access to housing and, as a result, people with disabilities make up 47.8% of the homeless population.

  • Many rental properties do not accept housing vouchers, a practice that could result in disability discrimination.

    Unlocking the Barrier: South Carolina must incentivize acceptance of Housing Choice Vouchers.

  • When homeowners or their family members acquire disabilities, the high costs of home modification have the power to derail the American Dream.

    Unlocking the Barrier: A tax incentive for home modifications can lessen the financial burden of ownership for people with disabilities.
