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.
