Non-Elderly Disabled Category 2 Housing Choice Voucher Program: An Implementation and Impact Analysis. IV. Conclusions and Lessons for Future Policies and Programs


The 1999 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Olmstead v. L.C. (527 U.S. 581) affirmed the right of people with disabilities to receive publicly provided services and support in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. The HUD NED2 program was designed to help non-elderly people with disabilities address barriers to living in the community by providing rental subsidies, assisting with arrangements for the transition to community-based services, and assuring ongoing coordination of housing and social supports.

This evaluation assessed the effectiveness of the NED2 voucher distribution process and estimated the impact of voucher availability on the rate of transition from institutions to community-based settings among the eligible population in selected sites. In this chapter, we conclude by summarizing major findings, discussing lessons that can inform future policies, and suggesting ideas for future research.
