Accessibility and Visitability

Philadelphia strongly supports improving housing opportunities for people with disabilities.

The City funds affordable homes for sale and rental developments that include accessibility and visitability features. It also manages its own program to adapt existing homes to the needs of people with disabilities through the Adaptive Modifications Program.


In addition to new and rehabbed homes, Philadelphia supports housing counseling geared to address the needs of people with disabilities and provides information on a website that includes the ability to search for affordable homes.
