In Virginia, a federal agency is scrutinizing a state program that provides financial assistance to disabled people.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's Office of Civil Rights office says in a letter to Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities that it will pursue action in the group's complaint against the state.
The group filed a complaint in May alleging that Virginia is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by requiring auxiliary grant recipients to live in segregated group homes.
In its complaint, Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities asked the Office of Civil Rights to investigate the matter, find that the state is violating the ADA and order Virginia to allow people living in integrated, community-based housing to receive state benefits.
