Title II of the ADA applies to all programs, services, and activities provided or made available by public entities. This includes housing when the housing is provided or made available by a public entity. For example, housing covered by Title II of the ADA includes public housing authorities that meet the ADA definition of "public entity," and housing operated by States or units of local government, such as housing on a State university campus.
Title III of the ADA covers public and common use areas at housing developments when these public areas are, by their nature, open to the general public. For example, it covers the rental office since the rental office is open to the general public.

For information about housing programs in your state, contact the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).
A Disabled Facilities Grant is a local council grant to help towards the cost of adapting your home to enable you to continue to live there. A grant is paid when the council considers that changes are necessary to meet your needs, and that the work is reasonable and practical.
Specialist equipment and adaptations can make it much easier for you to live independently in your own home.
The equipment available ranges from large equipment like stairlifts and hoists to smaller gadgets designed for people with specific disabilities.
Your local council can tell you about its services and about care homes and supported or sheltered housing in your area.
