Fair Housing Accessibility First Training

The Fair Housing Accessibility First training will be held in New York City on April 25, 2013 from 9 am to 3 pm at 26 Federal Plaza, 6th Floor Conference Room. Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST is an initiative designed to promote compliance with the Fair Housing Act design and construction requirements. The program offers comprehensive and detailed instruction programs, useful online web resources, and a toll-free information line for technical guidance and support. Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST has been contracted by HUD to provide information, materials, and technical assistance to all relevant stakeholders about the accessibility design and construction requirements of the Fair Housing Act as amended in 1988. However, Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST is not responsible for enforcement of the Fair Housing Act. The information, materials, and technical assistance are intended solely as informal guidance and are neither a determination of legal responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act nor binding on any agency with enforcement responsibility under the Fair Housing Act. This training is one of 10 trainings offered by FHAF across the country during 2013. It will provide an overview of the accessibility requirements of the Fair Housing Act, the Act's scope and coverage, a discussion of the seven technical requirements, as well as other resources to aid in compliance. The New York State Division of Human Rights will also be participating in this event, providing training in both disability and familial status issues under their fair housing law.
