Partnerships to Increase Housing Stability Through Assistive Technology and Home Modifications & Repairs

Monday, August 7, 2023
1:00-2:00 pm, Eastern time

Register for the webinar.

Description:
Although 40% of American households include someone who needs accessibility features to live independently, most homes in the U.S. do not have those features. Increasing a person’s access to home modification and repair services and assistive technology (AT) can decrease their risk of living unhoused or in an institution.

Join the Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) for a webinar to explore the role of home modifications, AT, and home repairs in promoting accessible, stable housing and learn how service providers can join forces to increase access to them. Participants will learn about:

  • The connection between accessibility and housing stability.
  • Federal programs that provide related funding and services.
  • How to develop partnerships that improve service coordination.
  • Types of organizations that could be effective partners.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on joining the webinar. The event will include real-time captioning and ASL interpreting. If you need additional accommodations or have questions, please email HSRC@acl.hhs.gov. Everyone who registers by 9:00 am Eastern Time on the morning of the webinar will receive a Zoom reminder email that contains links to the slides, accessibility tips, and other handouts.

Launched in partnership between the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development, the Housing and Services Resource Center fosters cross-sector partnerships between the organizations and systems that provide housing resources and homelessness services, health care and mental health services, independent living services, and other supportive services. The HSRC is part of an interagency initiative to streamline and expand access to affordable, accessible housing and the critical services that make community living possible.
