Statewide and Regional Housing Collaboratives
(Development of Non-Cerified Housing Options)
Project Status: Active
Grantee: New York Alliance for Inclusion and Innovation (NY Alliance)
Funding Amount: $250,000 per year
Grant Period: 1/2019 - 12/2021
WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
In a recent survey of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) on the NYS OPWDD’s Residential Request List, a large percentage indicated a desire to explore/live in non-certified housing. This grant will support the development of the State capacity to deliver these residential options.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT HELP?
NY Alliance will increase and support the effort to have individuals with IDD living in a desired, community based and non-certified residential setting.
