Training: NYCHA Reasonable Accommodations (RA)
July 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Please join the Brooklyn Health & Housing Consortium on Thursday, July 28th from 10:00-11:30am for a virtual training on Reasonable Accommodation (RA) requests for residents living in NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) housing, led by the Legal Aid Society (LAS) and the Red Hook Community Justice Center (RHCJC). Attorneys Lucy Newman and Alex MacDougall will describe the legal context of Reasonable Accommodation policies and eligibility criteria, along with current limitations. Following that, Ross Joy and Daren Sealey from RHCJC will provide practical tips for completing an RA request, required forms, use of the online self-service portal, and follow-up steps to take to advocate on behalf of the client.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
• Understand the general legal foundation for Reasonable Accommodations
• Describe housing and health conditions that determine NYCHA residents eligibility to seek Reasonable Accommodations
• Assist a client/patient with completing the NYCHA Reasonable Accommodation’s application, including the medical verification form and other necessary documentation
• Understand how to utilize the tenant online self-service portal and follow the status of the Reasonable Accommodations submission
