September 26, 2016

New research from the Research and Training Center on Disability in Rural Communities (RTC: Rural) at UM Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities, in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Research Training Center on Community Living, presents the state of inaccessible housing for people with mobility disabilities. The data reveal most homes lack critical accessibility features, not meeting individual needs, and potentially impacting broader community engagement and participation.
