Structural Accessibility / HUD-FHEO / 504-UFAS

PURPOSE: This one-day training focuses on the accessibility standards for all housing programs using any federal dollars. Federal monies spent on the development of the property, rehabilitation of structures in the real estate portfolio, or support of the residents, makes the property eligible for mandatory compliance under the 504-UFAS requirements. The class will also review the differences between fair housing standards for accessibility (used when no federal dollars are involved) and the various other accessibility standards for public buildings.

HUD/FHEO is actively auditing public housing authorities and multi-family developments in an effort to drive accessibility compliance on 504-UFAS and fair housing sites as applicable. In call, we will discuss the current voluntary compliance agreement (VCA) trends and look at a sample of lawsuits brought by HUD/FHEO and The Department of Justice (DOJ) in their efforts to drive compliance with housing providers.

The various tools used to teach this class include PowerPoint slides, video, a workbook, and the Inspection Checklist copied for the student to take with them.

This class can be combined with the two-day Fair Housing training to create a three-day seminar, Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodation plus Structural Accessibility.
