Definition of disabled:

HUD defines a person with disabilities as a person who:

1. has a disability as defined in Section 223 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C.423— see below), or

2. is determined by HUD regulations to have a physical, mental or emotional impairment that:

     a) is expected to be of long, continued, and indefinite duration;

     b) substantially impedes his or her ability to live independently; and

     c) is of such a nature that such ability could be improved by more suitable housing conditions, or

3. has a developmental disability as defined in the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (42 U.S.C. 15002(8)—see below), or

4. has the disease acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or any conditions arising from the etiologic agent for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV).

For the purpose of qualifying for low income housing under HUD public housing and Section 8 programs, the definition does not include a person whose disability is based solely on any drug or alcohol dependence
