Housing and Handicapped People.
Thompson, Marie McGuire
The report on housing for the handicapped addresses three areas: the state of the art, issues involved in developing a housing program, and options and recommendations. Considered in the discussion of the state of the art are related federal legislation (including the 1974 Housing and Community Development Act); major governmental and private activities (including examples of joint federal-state funding in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia, and programs in western Europe and Canada); and selected design and housing research. Among the issues considered in developing a housing program are community attitudes, legislative deficiencies, and precipitous deinstitutionalization. Options are outlined, recommendations are made to Congress, federal and state agencies, and suggestions are offered for improving the 1974 Housing Act. (CL)
