What is “Section 504”?
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (24 CFR Part 8) known as "Section 504," prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in any program receiving Federal monies, such as the HOME Program. It governs the design and construction of housing to ensure that Federal programs are operated to be accessible to persons with disabilities, and to ensure that a portion of housing developed with Federal funds is accessible to those with mobility, visual, and hearing impairments. See Section 504 Notices, Regulations and Supportive Documents for more information.
SDHDA encourages developers, managers, and owners to follow all Federal laws governing accessibility for disabled persons.
