“NAHB is pleased to be working with HUD to fight accessibility discrimination against persons with disabilities under the federal Fair Housing Act. The $110,000 grant awarded to our association will be used to educate developers and multifamily building owners and managers on the Fair Housing Act’s accessibility requirements.
