1. Relocation of Existing Residents
A resident that has (or has a family member who has) a physical disability
and is in need of an appropriately adapted apartment should contact the Site Manager
to inform him/her of the disability and the need (using the Request for Relocation
to Wheelchair Accessible or Hearing/Visually Adapted Apartment form which can obtained
from the respective Site Manager).
The Manager will request a "disability verification" which the resident can
obtain from his/her doctor.
Once the Manager has received the "disability verification" from the doctor,
he/she will forward it to the Director of the Administration Department. The
Administration Department will maintain a list by date of information. As
the appropriate sized apartment becomes available, the disabled resident will be
relocated. The Administration Department will also notify the Applicant Selection
and Accounts Receivable Department of changes.
2. Placement of Disabled Residents from the JCHA Waiting List
If the handicapped apartment cannot accommodate existing residents with the appropriate
disability, the Administration Department will inform the Applicant Selection Office
of availability. The Applicant Selection Office will assign an eligible, qualified
applicant on the Public Housing Waiting List having a disability requiring the accessible
features of the vacant apartment.
