Accessible Alabama works to increase accessible housing options in communities for people with disabilities and those facing growing limitations as they age.
We engage public, private and non-profit sectors to help our communities step up to meet current accessible housing needs and prepare for the accelerating demand as the aging population grows.
Our areas of focus:
- educating the general public and community leaders so they can be proactive about accessible housing needs and the coming demographic shifts that impact communities
- connecting needs of people with disabilities, housing development stakeholders, and principles of Universal Design;
- promoting innovation and technical assistance in accessible design
- informing Alabama’s public agencies, policies, and community decisions with best practices and successful models from other states;
