A Heartbeat Away from a Housing Crisis: Measure A housing for People with Developmental Disabilities
On September 11, 2018, the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors will vote on a proposal to include people with developmental disabilities on the Measure A housing bond, which finances affordable housing for "vulnerable populations". If the proposal passes, 5% of the $800 million, already dedicated to creating affordable rental housing, will be used to help a more diverse population by including people with developmental disabilities .
Currently, the County is only spending Measure A housing bond funds for affordable housing projects that house people drawn from the County's Continuum of Care database of homeless people, people episodically homeless, and people who have received a notice terminating their housing. This is extremely important, but it overlooks adults with developmental disabilities living at home with aging parents.
We at Housing Choices always strive to give our friends and family living with developmental disabilities a voice and a home. If you would like to support the cause and make a difference, please click below to learn more or fill out our form!
