Reasonable Accommodations

A reasonable accommodation is a change, exception, or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice, or service that may be necessary for a person with disabilities to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling, including public and common use spaces, or to fulfill their program obligations. Please note that the ADA often refers to these types of accommodations as "modifications."

REMINDER: To make a Reasonable Accommodation request, please contact your Property Management.

How Does the Program Work?

Program participation mandates the AHA work requirement which is that at least one non-disabled adult member of the household, age 18 to 61, must be legally employed or self-employed on a full-time basis at least 20 hours per week in a legitimate business enterprise as appropriately documented as required by management procedures. Each other household member 18 years old and above must be either:

  • Legally employed or self-employed (as described above) on a full-time equivalent basis at least 20 hours per week
  • A full-time student at a management-approved and recognized school or institution
  • Employed (but not self-employed) on a part-time basis and either (i) attending a management-approved and recognized school or institution or (ii) participating in a management-approved and recognized training program, for a combined minimum total of at least 20 hours per week of employment and education/training
  • Participating in a management-recognized training program

NOTE: The Work/Program Participation Requirement does not apply to households in which all adult members of the household are either 62 years of age or older, a person with a verified disability

Eligibility and Priority Categories

Eligible applicants will be ranked on the site-based waiting list according to the recorded date and time their fully completed pre-application forms were received and accepted by management. Applicants who request a fully accessible unit will also be placed on both standard and accessible unit waiting lists if both waiting lists are open.

Please note that an applicant desiring to lease an assisted apartment must comply with all applicable eligibility criteria, including but not limited to the criteria set forth in the pre-application. All information provided by the applicant will be verified from all applicable sources including, but not limited to employers, providers, and federal, state and local government agencies. Applicants who have misrepresented any information during the application process may be removed from the site-based waiting list or, if housed, subject to lease termination. In addition, applicants who have previously participated in any assisted housing program and were terminated for cause may not be eligible. Applicants who are determined

ineligible will be offered the opportunity to participate in an informal meeting with management to dispute the ineligibility decision.

Requests for Reasonable Accommodations during the pre-application process will be taken by telephone at each community and at the phone numbers indicated on the above list or TTY/Relay 711.

If you have questions about the program, please contact the property directly or AH at 404-892-4700.
