HHA is committed to ensuring that its policies and procedures do not deny individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in, or benefit from, nor otherwise discriminate against individuals with disabilities, on the basis of disability, in connection with the operations of HHA’s programs, services and activities. Therefore, if an individual with a disability requires an accommodation such as an accessible feature or modification to a HHA policy, HHA will provide such accommodation unless doing so would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the program; or an undue financial and administrative burden. In such a case, the HHA will make another accommodation that would not result in a financial or administrative burden.
A reasonable accommodation is a change, modification, alteration or adaptation in policy, procedure, practice, program, or facility that provides a qualified individual with a disability the opportunity to participate in, or benefit from, a program (housing or no housing) or activity.
HHA will post a copy of this Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedures in the Central Administrative Offices located AT 75 East 6th Street, Hialeah, Florida 33010; in the offices of HHA’s private management companies; and, the management office in each public housing development. In addition, individuals may obtain a copy of this Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedures, upon request, from the HHA’s Section 504 Coordinator.
