Senator Scott Releases Report on Affordable, Accessible Housing for Older Adults

U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging Ranking Member Tim Scott (R-SC) released a new report on April 1, “Housing for the Golden Years: Trends, Gaps, and Solutions for Older Americans.” The report examines shifting demographic trends and supply gaps in the availability of affordable, accessible housing for seniors and suggests ways the public and private sectors can help increase the supply of affordable, accessible senior housing.

“Seniors and people with disabilities comprise more than half of public housing residents today, but accessible units remain far too limited,” explained Senator Scott in a press release announcing the report. “Having a place to call home is part of the American Dream. As our senior population increases, we must increase safe and affordable housing options for those in their golden years.”
