How accessibility laws and standards apply to housing development

Posted by: maura on 4/9/2012

The Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (VHCB) has developed an “accessibility tool” for funders and developers to use to determine when and how the various accessibility laws and standards (ADA, Section 504, UFAS, FHA, VT’s Access Rules and Visitability Law) apply to affordable housing development.  In recognition of National Fair Housing Month and the completion this project, VHCB is hosting an accessibility training on April 30th 1:30-3:30pm in Montpelier (exact location to be determined).

The principle author of this tool, Nolan Riegler a Vermont Law School intern, will give an overview of his research on the applicable laws and regulations, walk everyone through how to use the “accessibility tool”, and then we’ll open it up for questions and next steps.

RSVP to VHCB by Monday, April 9th by calling 802.828.3250 or emailing VHCB.
