Abstract

Despite the well-documented benefits of stable housing, there are myriad barriers that preclude low-income and homeless individuals from accessing housing support. This article examines which individual characteristics predict greater or more limited access to supportive housing and rental subsidy programs in Hartford, Connecticut. Although individuals with HIV/AIDS are most likely to access housing, options are limited for other vulnerable populations, including those with substance use disorders and mental illness.
