Governor Jack Markell’s Weekly Message this week comes from the Director of the State Housing Authority, Anas Ben-Addi, on increasing independence for individuals with disabilities. A recent award of $5.1-million in federal funding from HUD will help to create housing opportunities for people with disabilities who have very low incomes and will give them more independence. The Section 811 Demonstration program will help keep people from becoming homeless or living in long-term care facilities – which costs the state more money and isn’t how anyone wants to live. This is the centerpiece of Governor Markell’s policy work as the Chair of the National Governor’s Association.
