Recently the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights published a proposed update to the HHS regulations implementing Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibits disability discrimination by recipients of federal funding. This is the first comprehensive update to the regulations since they were first put in place and when implemented, will have an impact on multifamily operations with regard to compliance with non-discrimination laws.

According to the published notice, “The proposed rule proposes to update pertinent provisions throughout the rule to promote consistency with title II of the ADA and the corresponding U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) ADA regulations. The proposed rule will add the following new sections to the section 504 regulations that track the ADA regulations: definition of ‘‘disability,’’ notice, maintenance of accessible features, retaliation and coercion, personal devices and services, service animals, mobility devices, and communications,” as well as other areas.

“Section 504 and the ADA are generally understood by courts to impose similar requirements. Moreover, the vast majority of recipients have been covered by either title II of the ADA (State and local government entities) or title III of the ADA (certain private entities) since 1991. Therefore, the rule proposes to adopt ADA language in appropriate circumstances. Doing so will allow for greater public understanding and ease of compliance by regulated entities.“

Join us to learn how these proposed changes will impact compliance with Section 504, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act.
