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 or applicant 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 is committed to protecting the integrity of the housing programs that we administer and ensure that benefits are received only by eligible families and participating owners in accordance with federal regulations.

If you have reason to believe that any fraudulent activity is taking place in connection with any of the agency's housing programs, we ask that you promptly notify us.
