Housing for disabled

To the Editor, 
I recently learned that the Bennington Housing Authority no longer provides housing for people with a disability if they are under the age of 62 in their existing subsidized apartments.  While “seniors” who no longer can age in place because of the architecture of our current homes will face slightly less competition for a scarce resource, the decision takes six subsidized, accessible apartments off the market for younger disabled Vermonters.
