Section 504 provides that no qualified individual with a disability should, only by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
This Web site provides a wide variety of resources with two goals in mind:
1) to provide guidance to persons with disabilities about their rights under Section 504 and related statutes, the exercise of those rights, and what information and resources are available from HUD; and
2) to provide recipients of HUD financial assistance with information regarding their obligations under Section 504, an overview of relevant regulatory provisions, and information about steps they may take to ensure that they are in compliance.

We are fully committed to ensuring that its programs and activities are accessible to everyone, and that our Section 504 Web site will promote information-sharing and dialogue among all those who share this commitment.

Thank you for your interest and support.
