Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodation

Reasonable Accommodation makes it possible for people with disabilities to fully participate in SCCHA’s Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) rental assistance programs. As long as you are eligible, you should be able to access our housing programs and rental assistance services in Santa Clara County.

Fair Housing provides housing without any discriminatory practices and policies.

What is a Reasonable Accommodation?

A reasonable accommodation makes sure that anyone with a disability still has the opportunity to participate. The official definition of a reasonable accommodation is: a change, exception, or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice, or service that may be necessary for a person with disabilities to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling, including public and common use spaces, or to fulfill their program obligations.
