Reasonable Accommodations

The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda (AHA) provides reasonable accommodations to all applicants and participants with disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is a change, exception, or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice or service that may be necessary for a person with a disability to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a housing unit; access to an agency’s facilities, activities or programs; or public and common-use spaces.

A person with a disability may require special accommodations in order to have equal access to the programs or housing offered by the AHA.  Tenants of AHA-owned housing may require unit modifications.  Federal law requires that housing providers make reasonable accommodations and modifications for persons with disabilities.  The AHA complies with Section 504 which prohibits discrimination against persons with​ disabilities in any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. 

Inquiries regarding the equal opportunity policies, the filing of grievances, or to request a copy of the Housing Authority’s 504 grievance procedures may be directed to Section 504 Coordinator:

Informal Hearings

The family has an opportunity to appeal an adverse decision made by AHA that denies the reasonable accommodation request.  AHA will provide the family an opportunity for an Informal Review or Informal Hearing in accordance with Federal Requirements under CFR 982.554 and 982.555.  An Informal Hearing is provided when an appeal to the decision to deny a request for a reasonable accommodation due to a disability is received.
