With the introduction of the DOJ’s Accessibility Initiative, and NCSHA’s 46 New Best Practices (nearly 10% of which deal directly with accessibility), it’s more important than ever to understand accessibility regulations.

During NAHB’s Accessibility Requirements for Multifamily Housing: Myths and Facts webinar scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 22, 2-3 p.m. ET, E&A Team President Mark English will help participants effectively comply with regulations through key points, including:

  • Determining which accessibility regulations impact you and your projects based on your type of funding and date of occupancy.
  • Investigating whether or not your architects correctly designed properties according to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations and, if not, how to go about correcting issues that occurred during or after construction.
  • Reviewing the latest DOJ Accessibility Enforcement Actions against Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), Rural Development (RD), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HOME and conventional properties.

You can earn 1.0 hours of continuing education credits for the following 12 designations: CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGP, CGR, CMP, CSP, GMB, GMR, Master CGP, Master CSP, MIRM.
