Increase Access to IDAs for People With Disabilities

Serving People with Disabilities

AFI grantees and their partner organizations report that some people with disabilities are having trouble accessing and using IDAs. Because they are disproportionately low-income, people with disabilities account for a large share of the AFI target population, but they are underrepresented among IDA participants.

Lack of information about IDAs, misconceptions about how they affect means-tested benefits, and challenges that AFI grantees face in identifiying and serving people with disabilities contribute to low participation rates. This section includes information on increasing IDA use by people with disabilities.
