It is the policy of the Housing Authority of Richmond to fully comply with all Federal, State, and local nondiscrimination laws; the American with Disabilities Act; and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations governing Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.

Reasonable Accommodation

Sometimes people with disabilities need a reasonable accommodation in order to take full advantage of The Housing Authority of Richmond’s housing programs and related services. When such accommodations are granted, they do not confer special treatment or advantage for the person with disabilities; rather, they make the programs accessible to them in ways that would otherwise not be possible due to their disability.
