DDS Rental Unit (DDS-R)

Through an interagency agreement with the Department of Developmental Services, the California Department of Housing and Community Development helps to administer a $3,718,000 program pursuant to a 1994 Superior Court decision called the Coffelt Agreement. Funding under this program is completely exhausted and no new funding is anticipated. However, the program design reflects concepts from both affordable housing and supported living arrangements. Fourteen rental projects were established offering housing with rents at approximately 30% of an individual's income for regional center consumers throughout California. The sole purpose of the program is to provide additional long term affordable housing stock to individuals with an intellectual and developmental disability who choose to live in the community.

For more information about the DDS-R program, please contact Yvonne McCuistion at ymccuist@dds.ca.gov.
