The Homeless Definition final rule has a typo (pg 75977) that written documentation of disability includes written verification from a professional licensed by the state to diagnose and treat the condition AND written verification from the SSA or the receipt of disability check.
The regulatory text found on page 76016 and page 76019 contain the correct requirements. These sections indicate that acceptable evidence of a disability includes:
Written verification of the disability from a professional licensed by the state to diagnose and treat the disability and his or her certification that the disability is expected to be long-continuing or of indefinite duration and substantially impedes the individual’s ability to live independently; OR
Written verification from the Social Security Administration; OR
The receipt of a disability check; OR
Intake staff-recorded observation of a disability that, no later than 45 days of the application for assistance, is confirmed and accompanied by evidence in this; OR
Other documentation approve by HUD.
