PA Study on Housing Options for Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder

After discussion of 22 housing models explored in PA, this report identifies short­ and long­term recommendations designed to remove these barriers and increase housing options for individuals with autism. The recommendations focus on: educational opportunities for adults with autism and their families to learn about housing options and service regulations; creation of new housing opportunities by taking advantage of federal, state and local housing funding sources; amendments to current regulatory policies on licensed residential programs and waiver funding; and creating increased public awareness, and awareness by the affordable housing industry, of the need for housing choices for adults with autism.
