Date Published: February 2023


The purpose of this interactive tool is to educate housing providers, including HUD grantees, such as representatives of entitlement communities, participating jurisdictions (PJs), public housing agencies (PHAs), HUD housing counseling agencies and others involved in housing transactions, as well as persons with disabilities who seek reasonable accommodations related to assistance animals.

The information presented in this interactive tool is intended to be an explanation of FHEO-2020-01, a guidance document which HUD issued to provide housing providers with a set of best practices for complying with the Fair Housing Act when assessing requests for reasonable accommodations for assistance animals. This interactive tool is sponsored by HUD's Office of Fair Housing & Equal Opportunity (FHEO).
