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.
