Welcome to the HCV Managing Reasonable Accommodations training course!

Under the Fair Housing Act a reasonable accommodation is a change, exception, or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice, or service. The Fair Housing Act makes it unlawful to refuse to make reasonable accommodations to rules, policies, practices, or services when such accommodations may be necessary to afford persons with disabilities an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling and public and common use areas.

In addition, the Fair Housing Act prohibits a housing provider from refusing to permit, at the expense of the person with a disability, reasonable modifications of existing premises occupied or to be occupied by such person if such modifications may be necessary to afford such person full enjoyment of the premises.

In this training module, we will be exploring, in detail, reasonable accommodations and the responsibilities and requirements for all parties involved.

Topics include:

  • What is a reasonable accommodation?
  • What is a reasonable modification?
  • What are the responsibilities of the family, owner, and PHA?
  • What legislation governs the processes and policies applicable to reasonable accommodations?

As always, you will want to be familiar with your PHA’s administrative plan and any PHA specific regulations regarding reasonable accommodations to ensure that you have the most current and accurate information.

Make sure to take notes, go back over anything you don’t understand, and write down any questions you might have so you can be as prepared and successful as possible in your role with the HCV program.
