Accessible Housing Workshop Dates for 2013 Announced

Accessible Housing Workshop Dates scheduled for April 11th and December 12th, 2013

Under the federal Fair Housing Amendments Act passed in 1988, new multifamily residential buildings (built since March 1991) are required to be designed and constructed to provide access to people with disabilities. Despite the existence of these requirements, rental, condominium, and co-op buildings continue to be built in a non-compliant and inaccessible manner throughout New York City and the larger region. This half-day workshop will provide architects, builders, contractors, attorneys, property owners and managers, real estate professionals, disability rights advocates, public officials, civil rights leaders, fair housing enforcement agencies, and others with detailed and reliable information about federal accessibility requirements that apply to multifamily housing under the Fair Housing Act. The workshop will identify effective strategies to achieve compliance with federal accessibility laws, regulations, and requirements.
