TAC Releases Priced Out in 2012

Priced Out in 2012 is a study of the severe housing affordability problems experienced by people with disabilities. Priced Out calculates the difference between what an individual receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can reasonably afford to pay for housing costs and the average cost of modest housing units. Priced Out in 2012 confirms that non-elderly adults with disabilities living on SSI confront an enormous housing affordability gap across the entire nation. In 2012 in Vermont, a person with a disability received SSI benefits equal to $750 per month. Statewide, this income was equal to 19.0% of the area median income. A person with a disability receiving SSI would have to pay 92% of their monthly income to rent an efficiency unit and 101% of their monthly income for a one-bedroom unit.
