Anderson-Fischer Apartments, a new, wheelchair accessible, affordable apartment community in Mobile is in the final stages of construction and will soon provide nineteen wheelchair accessible apartments to very low income households with qualifying disabilities. The project is sponsored by the Alabama Head Injury Foundation (AHIF) and Mobile-based Accessible Space, Inc. (ASI). The one and two-bedroom apartments will be subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and qualifying households will pay approximately 30% of their monthly income for rent. The apartments are currently under construction and anticipated to be completed this November 2008.
The apartments are designed with an open floor plan and meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines for wheelchair accessibility. Apartments include a full kitchen with roll-under counters and accessible ovens and rangetops, and also provide an accessible bathroom with roll-in showers and grab bars. Other features include raised electrical outlets, lowered light switches and lever-action handles on the doors. One-bedroom apartments provide approximately 540 square feet of living space, and two-bedrooms provide approximately 800 square feet. Primary funding and rental assistance for Anderson-Fischer Apartments was provided by the HUD Section 811 Program, Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Atlanta’s Affordable Housing Program/Regions Bank
