Reasonable Accommodation Policy

Reasonable Accommodation Policy

It is HumanGood’s policy to provide reasonable accommodations in housing for housing applicants and residents with disabilities where reasonable accommodation is necessary to provide them with an equal opportunity to use and enjoy their apartment and the common areas of the rental community where they live.

This policy is in furtherance of the goal of providing affordable housing to low-income persons regardless of disability and in compliance with applicable federal, state, and local law. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or change that the HumanGood-owned or managed Property (HumanGood Community) can make to its policies procedures, processes and or to the person’s apartment or to a common area which would assist an otherwise eligible person with a disability to benefit from the HumanGood Community provided, that the change does not pose an undue financial and administrative burden to the HumanGood Community or result in a fundamental alteration of its program.

The Reasonable Accommodation policy and procedures outlined here applies to applicants and residents at HumanGood Communities who are qualified “individuals with a disability”. The HumanGood Community may require reliable documentation or verification of the disability that the individual needs the accommodation, and that the accommodation is likely to be effective. The HumanGood-owned or managed community will thoroughly and promptly consider any request for a reasonable accommodation, and will explain the basis for any denial to the requestor. In the course of evaluating and responding to a reasonable accommodation request, the HumanGood Community will seek to engage in a process of dialogue and joint problem solving with applicants and residents.
