VALLEY HOUSING FOR ALL, an organization created in 2014, has as its mission “Valley Housing for All creates better and more opportunities for people with disabilities to successfully live in the housing of their choice. We collect knowledge and information to formulate a thorough understanding of affordable housing opportunities in the Roaring Fork Valley and connect this knowledge throughout our community.”
Created by the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation (PAHRC) and the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) in an effort to provide communities with the information they need to effectively preserve their stock of public and affordable housing. The National Housing Preservation Database incorporates all available data on federally subsidized housing properties and includes nine separate funding streams. The National Housing Preservation Database can be filtered by location, funding stream, or ‘at risk of loss’ status.
Having a home to call one’s own is a giant milestone millions of Americans strive to achieve. Becoming a homeowner brings with it a sense of pride and accomplishment, but the process of touring homes for sale and making an offer can be intimidating. This is especially true for those with physical or emotional disabilities wishing to attain homeownership.
In fact, the federal government has established several laws and administrations for the sole purpose of protecting your rights as a disabled homebuyer, no matter the nature of your disability. This guide is designed to be a tool to assist those fearing their disability may become a factor in making the home buying experience more cumbersome. You will find information on what your rights are, resources to aid you in understanding the procedures involved in acquiring a home, and advice on how to proceed if you feel your rights have been dishonored. Additionally, you will find resources to make the most of the opportunities available to you for purchasing a home, whether your plans are to purchase your first house or to relocate from your current residence to your dream home.
