This training will examine Federal requirements to provide persons with disabilities reasonable accommodation throughout the occupancy
cycle. It will shed light on the confusion regarding what a housing provider’s legal obligations are in the area of reasonable accommodation. We will also discuss how state and local law may have an impact on a site’s obligation as well. In addition, we will review the role of a 504 coordinator in general and in the context of reasonable accommodations as well as the 504 grievance procedure.
What is the legal framework (statues, regulations, federal guidance) for reasonable accommodation/physical modification as well as the 504 coordinator and grievance procedure, what is a reasonable accommodation, what are the limits on providing an accommodation/modification, when can a housing provider deny a reasonable accommodation/modification, what must a housing provider do if a requested accommodation is denied, who can request an accommodation/modification, what can/can’t a housing provider ask/verify when a request is made, and the role of the 504 coordinator and grievance procedure in regards to reasonable accommodation.
We will explore how to analyze specific common requests for reasonable accommodations/modifications throughout the occupancy cycle including, but not limited to, assistance animals, live-in aides, physical modifications and transfers. Case studies will be provided and specific guidance contained in the 4350.3 Rev-1 will be explored.
