Guidebook on Reasonable Accomodations and Modifications

The Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) is proud to release a first-of-its-kind Guidebook on Reasonable Accommodations and Modifications. In accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Act, this book provides guidance and clarification on the accommodations and modifications that must be made in housing for persons with disabilities and their family members.

The release of the Guidebook comes at a time when the nation celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Federal Fair Housing Act, an important civil rights law that guarantees equal access to housing for all by prohibiting discrimination in the sale, rental and financing of housing. IDHR is committed to working with housing professionals to eliminate housing discrimination and achieve diverse, inclusive communities.
