Fair Housing Policy
It is the policy and commitment of HumanGood that it does not discriminate in housing and housing-related transactions on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, familial status, marital status, source of income, handicap or disability, or arbitrary characteristics. HumanGood affirms its policy of equal housing opportunity pursuant to state and federal fair housing laws.
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.
Residents are permitted to keep common household pets in their apartments. Service or assistance animals are also welcome. Applicants and residents must inform the community’s management about their requirement for a service or assistance animal.
The Pet Rules that are attached to the Lease at this community are instituted to help maintain a decent, safe, and sanitary living environment for the residents of the community. The rules include guidelines on the registration and inoculation of pets, the sanitary disposal of waste, and the restraint of pets while in common areas, to help ensure that existing and prospective pet owners know their responsibilities to their pets and neighbors, as well as the property.
Management will not apply pet rules to assistance animals and their owners. This prohibition does not preclude an owner from enforcing state and local health and safety laws, nor does it preclude the owner from requiring that a resident with a disability who uses an assistance animal be responsible for the care and maintenance of the animal, including the proper disposal of the assistance animal’s waste.
Smoking is only permitted in designated areas. Residents will be required to sign a non-smoking agreement and must undertake that they or their guests will only smoke in designated areas on the premises.
