Federal law generally requires housing providers to make reasonable accommodation for persons with disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is a change; exception; or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice or service that may be necessary for a person with a disability to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a housing unit; access to an agency's facilities, activities or programs; or public and common-use spaces. A resident or applicant with a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities may apply for a reasonable accommodation with the Housing Authority.
The Housing Authority is committed to protecting the integrity of the housing programs that we administer and ensure that benefits are received only by eligible families and participating owners in accordance with federal regulations.
