November 10, 2015: Housing Rights of Survivors with Disabilities

Domestic and sexual violence survivors with disabilities may face additional barriers to admission or continued occupancy due to a rule, policy or practice of the housing provider. Survivors may seek a reasonable accommodation, which is a change in such rule, policy, or practice that may be necessary to allow the survivor with a disability the equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling. This webinar provides a basic review of the law regarding reasonable accommodation and how it may be used to assist survivors who have disabilities.
