The purpose of the Fair Housing Act Checklist: A Guide to Accessible Design and Construction Compliance (FHA Checklist) is to highlight regulations as they apply to “covered” multifamily dwellings. Covered multifamily buildings are defined by the Fair Housing Act (FHA) as buildings with four or more dwelling units that are newly constructed for first occupancy on or after March 13, 1991. This checklist is organized along the seven technical requirements of the FHA; certain deviations in sequencing have been made to enhance the usability of the checklist during a site survey.
This handbook highlights compliance oversights made during design and construction which are common among projects subject to the Fair Housing Act (the Act). It can be used as a guide by design and construction professionals. Practical solutions to consider for mitigating oversights are offered and are based on lessons learned. This document is not a safe harbor for compliance with the Act; departures from solutions recommended in this guide are acceptable as long as the solution selected achieves compliance with the requirements of the Act.
This ERC self-advocacy toolkit is specifically designed to assist people who may experience discrimination based on their race, national origin, or religion, and will help them assert their rights under the Fair Housing Act.
