New Guidance: Fair Housing Act and Americans with Disabilities Act
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
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.
