Reasonable Accommodations for Disabled Clients


Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in all services, programs, and activities made available by state and local governments. The Housing Authority complies with all applicable laws and regulations and is committed to ensuring that all individuals enjoy full access to and can benefit from our facilities, programs and services.

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, applicant or voucher holder 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's 504 Reasonable Accommodation Housing Policy and Procedures are posted in the Housing Authority's Central Administrative offices located at 2640 Fountain View Houston, Texas 77057. These documents are also available at the management offices of each agency community.
