Olmstead & Community Integration​

The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1999 Olmstead decision, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act all affirm the right of people with disabilities to live in integrated settings, and require government agencies to ensure that this is possible — yet much remains to be done to make this goal a reality. Too many people with disabilities currently live in psychiatric hospitals, nursing homes, or substandard board and care facilities, while others face the risk of institutionalization due to being homeless.

TAC helps states to increase their supportive housing supply, identify funding sources, and improve access to services, bringing them into compliance with federal standards.
