New Guidance: Fair Housing Act and Americans with Disabilities Act

Wednesday, September 12, 2018  
Share |

LeadingAge has provided new guidance that summarizes the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The guidance should help members answer the following questions:

  • What are the protected classes of individuals under FHA?
  • Are senior housing providers exempt from part of the FHA?
  • Does the ADA apply to senior housing situations?

The FHA and the ADA are the two main anti-discrimination statutes that affect senior living providers. Knowing how these statutes apply to various settings is important to all staff – from marketing personnel at the beginning of the process through the front-line and maintenance staff upon move-in. Download the guidance.
