Feds Deaf Housing Not For Deaf People

Feds try to eliminate housing for the deaf — at complex built for hearing-impaired | Fox News.

In 2005 it was a good idea. Now in 2013 it’s illegal! I wonder what changed?

“A 2005 federal study found that the U.S. had virtually no affordable housing for the deaf. So the federal government helped build Apache ASL Trails, a 75-unit apartment building in Tempe, Ariz., designed specifically for the deaf. Ninety-percent of the units are currently occupied by deaf and deaf-blind seniors.

But now, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development says Apache ASL Trails violates civil rights law — because it shows a preference for the hearing-impaired.”
