Fair Housing - Assistance Animals and Fair Housing (Webinar 2/9/22 - 1 PM Eastern)

About this event

Assistance Animals and Fair Housing

Animals can play a very important role in assisting persons with disabilities and as part of therapeutic activities and services. Most people are aware of the role of service animals, such as guide dogs, but there are other types of supportive animals that some people may be less familiar with, such as emotional support animals

Regardless of whether it is a service animal or an emotional support animal, all housing professionals need to be of the requirements related to these types of animals under the Fair Housing Act.

Reasonable Accommodation Requests for Assistance Animals

Reasonable Accommodation requests for an assistance animal are one of the most common requests received by housing providers. In this live 90-minute webinar, Amanda Lee Gross will walk attendees through a reasonable accommodation process and will answer questions such as:

  • Who is considered disabled under Fair Housing Law?
  • Who can verify an individual's disability, and when is verification permitted?
  • What is a reasonable accommodation?
  • Can a housing provider require that assistance animals be specially trained?
  • Can a housing provider apply weight or breed limits on assistance animals?
  • In what circumstances is it permissible to deny a specific assistance animal?
  • Amanda will also review the recently published HUD notice on assistance animals.

It's the Law, and It's the Right Thing To Do

By understanding the housing providers' obligations of the Fair Housing Act, housing professionals are better equipped to implement policies and procedures that support the principles of the Fair Housing Act and protects the rights of applicant and tenants.

Meet Amanda Lee Gross

Amanda Lee Gross learned the affordable housing industry from the ground-up, starting as a site manager and quickly working her way to a Compliance Director. Ms. Gross has leveraged that experience and became a nationally recognized expert trainer in Fair Housing, LIHTC, RD, HUD, and HOME. She has conducted hundreds of training workshops and seminars throughout the country, helping property management professionals become more effective and better able to protect the assets and reputation of companies. Amanda is a thought leader in the affordable housing industry, speaking at several industry conferences each year, and working closely with a number of state agencies. She has a one of a kind training style that conveys the complex elements of affordable housing compliance in a relaxed and easy to understand style.

I have had the great pleasure of leading a couple of classes with Amanda Gross – trainer extraordinaire at US Housing Consultants. I feel like I’m the “old guard” watching over the “rising star”. Amanda’s classes are full of necessary information and she has a knack for delivering compliance content in such a way that you will never be bored. If you get a chance, be sure to join her for a LIHTC or HUD training.--- Mary Ross
