Percentage of Households with a Housing Choice Voucher with a Resident who has a Disability, 2016

The data in this map shows the percentage of all households with a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV; formerly Section 8 Certificates) who have someone with a disability. A household includes can be 1) an individual living alone and 2) a family with a child/children. This includes elderly residents (age 62 and older) that may be living alone, with a spouse and/or with grandchildren. The percentage is based on the total number of all households in the HCV program in that jurisdiction. It is a larger proportion than the percentage based on total number of people shown in Map 11 because there are many individuals with disabilities, which then count as one household.
