16 Dez Section 504 Voluntary Compliance Agreement
Mobile Housing Board employees are required to comply with all provisions of the Voluntary Compliance Agreement and to comply with all Fair Housing, 504 and ADA requirements. If so, this respect includes any report and registration. Failure to comply with the Voluntary Compliance Agreement and the policies and procedures of the Mobile Housing Board Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodation could lead to disciplinary action up to the termination of employment. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by recipients of federal financial assistance and requires recipients of federal financial assistance to bring their programs and activities in line with federal accessibility requirements. In addition, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits government and local authorities from discriminating on the basis of disability in all services, activities and programs. The case began when HUD conducted an audit to determine whether haPGC complied with Section 504 and ADA. The hud compliance review revealed a lack of accessibility in the HAPGC Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), Project-Based Voucher (PBV), Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab) and Public Housing (PH) programs. The audit also found that HAPGC employees did not regularly respond to reasonable accommodation requests from tenants. On December 17, 2018, the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO), entered into a voluntary compliance agreement (VCA) with the Mobile Housing Board (MHB) after it was determined that MHB did not meet the legal and regulatory requirements of Section 504, ADA and Section 3. June 10, 2020 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reached a voluntary compliance agreement with the Prince George County Host Authority (HAPGC) in Maryland after a HUD compliance review determined that HAPGC rejected requests for appropriate accommodation for tenants with disabilities, did not guarantee accessibility to existing facilities, and did not have a reasonable number of accessible units. HUD and the City of Los Angeles signed a Voluntary Compliance Agreement (VCA) on August 2 on compliance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
