It is the policy of this Property to comply fully with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, Executive Order 11063, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, and any legislation protecting the individual rights of residents, applicants, or staff which may subsequently be enacted.

The Property shall not discriminate because of race, color, sex, familial status, religion, handicap, disability, or national origin in the leasing, rental, or other disposition of housing in any of the following:

  1. deny to any household the opportunity to apply for housing, nor deny to any eligible applicant the opportunity to lease housing suitable to its needs,
  2. provide housing which is different than that provided others,
  3. subject a person to segregation or disparate treatment,
  4. restrict a person's access to any benefit enjoyed by others in connection with the housing program,
  5. treat a person differently in determining eligibility or other requirements for admission,
  6. deny a person access to the same level of services, or
  7. deny a person the opportunity to participate in a planning or advisory group which is an integral part of the housing program.

The Property will seek to identify and eliminate situations or procedures which create a barrier to equal housing opportunity for all. In accordance with Section 504, the Property will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with handicaps or disabilities (applicants or residents). Such accommodations may include changes in the method of administering policies, procedures, or services.

In reaching a reasonable accommodation with, or performing structural modification for otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, the Property is not required to:

  1. make structural alterations that require the removal or altering of a load-bearing structure,
  2. provide support services that are not already part of its housing programs,
  3. take any action that would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the program or service, or
  4. take any action that would result in an undue financial and administrative burden on the Property, including structural impracticality as defined in the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS).
