National Housing Law Project to Hold Webinar on Housing Rights for Survivors of Domestic Violence Who Have Disabilities

The National Housing Law Project (NHLP) will hold a webinar to address the housing rights for survivors of domestic violence who have disabilities. NHLP staff will provide a review of the law regarding reasonable accommodations and how such accommodations can be used to assist survivors who have a disability in obtaining and maintaining housing. The presentation will include scenarios to walk attendees through the process of requesting a reasonable accommodation for a survivor of domestic violence. The webinar will take place on Monday, June 22 at 1:30 pm ET and will be closed captioned.

Domestic violence survivors with disabilities face barriers to housing access and continued occupancy due to housing providers’ rules, policies, or practices. Survivors may seek reasonable accommodations that require a housing provider to change a rule, policy, or practice, in order to give survivors with a disability an equal opportunity to access housing.
