This project seeks to improve housing stability, affordability, and choice for people with developmental disabilities.
The project will:
- Disseminate knowledge and increase understanding about the possibility of homeownership for people with developmental disabilities and the outcomes homeownership generates for them.
- Provide information and learning resources demonstrating how these models of homeownership work and how to replicate them. Key audiences include:
- individuals with developmental disabilities and their families
- community Living and People First of Canada Federations
- financial institutions
- legal professionals, and municipal, provincial/territorial and federal government agencies
- Foster replication by enabling interested actors to engage in these models of homeownership.
