Fair housing and disability rights laws make reasonable accommodations available to individuals with disabilities. These laws do not eliminate tenancy obligations and their “reasonableness” is contextual. What may be reasonable for a tenant in a 500-unit building may not be reasonable for a tenant in a 5-unit building. In the same respect, an accommodation for one tenant with vision impairments may not be appropriate for another tenant with no vision impairments. The expectation is that the landlord and tenant will share information in an interactive conversation to develop an accommodation that is reasonable for both.
For individuals who have received eviction notices but are still in their homes • Why are you being evicted? • Are the reasons for the eviction related to your disability? How? • What might convince the landlord not to evict you? • What kind of help or accommodation would help you keep your housing?
This document provides model interview questions to guide service providers and the people they serve to access “reasonable accommodation” in housing. The following questions will guide service providers and the people they serve to access “reasonable accommodation” in housing. A reasonable accommodation in housing is a modification or adjustment that will enable a person with a disability to access the housing. Reasonable accommodation includes lowering cabinets for an individual who is in a wheelchair and adding fire alarms that flash for individuals who are hearing impaired. Reasonable accommodation applies to individuals with physical and mental disabilities who may face homelessness, as well as persons currently without stable housing. The questions seek information that will help the individual and the individual’s advocate secure a reasonable accommodation that will enable the person to find housing and remain housed.
 New multifamily housing with four or more units, built for first occupancy after March 13, 1991, must include the seven features of universal design. These features include a building entrance wide enough for a wheelchair and a route without steps; accessible public and common-use areas; and kitchens and bathrooms that allow a wheelchair to maneuver about the space. More details are in HUDs Fair Housing Act Regulartions, 24 CFR Section 100.205 . Location: Rockville, MD, USA
About the Housing Series: Access to affordable housing is essential to prevent and end homelessness. Locating housing resources is a daunting task, even without the stereotypes and generalizations that result in discrimination against people experiencing homelessness and mental illness. PATH providers know firsthand the scarcity of housing for individuals with limited incomes. To assist PATH providers in finding affordable housing, SAMHSA created the Housing Series. The Housing Series consists of information, resources and tools to help providers obtain housing for the people with whom they work. The Housing Series is available on the PATH website http://pathprogram.samhsa.gov under “Topics.” Additional resources and tools will be added periodically. Please send comments on the Housing Series and suggestions for additional resources to [email protected]
