Reasonable Accommodations

By law, public housing authorities and owners of multifamily housing are required to make reasonable accommodations that give people with physical or mental disabilities access to housing or help them to remain in housing.

If you or someone in your household has a disability, these laws can give you powerful tools to advocate on your own behalf when trying to obtain housing and when trying to use and enjoy the housing you have.
