Civil Rights & Reasonable Accommodation
Tacoma Housing Authority is committed to the civil rights of its staff and customers. It strives to do its part.
We seek to be a work place and to provide its housing and services free of unlawful discrimination. THA will not unlawfully discriminate because of:
|Race||Color||National Origin||Sexual Orientation|
|Age (over 40)||Marital Status||Familial Status||Veteran or Military Status|
We will reasonably accommodate the needs of disabled persons. Please ask for help if you are disabled and for that reason need help doing a THA job, complying with your THA lease, or using our services. Perhaps you need us to modify a rule, alter your job duties, change your THA apartment, or change how we communicate with you. If so THA will try to accommodate you. To do that, we must determine (i) that you are disabled, (ii) that you need the accommodation because of your disability, (iii) that it would not cause THA an undue burden or cost, and (iv) that it will not fundamentally alter your essential job functions or THA's programs.
We will not unlawfully retaliate against anyone because they in good faith exercised their civil rights.
If You Need Help
If you think we have broken these civil rights laws or have not done as well as you expect, we would like to hear about it. We may also be helpful if a landlord participating in our rental assistance programs or our contractors or service providers need help understanding or complying with these laws. If you have concerns or questions or need help please contact us:
