The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place from and provide an advanced session on accessible residential facilities. Presenters will focus on untangling the various federal laws that address access to housing, including the Architectural Barriers Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. They will discuss how the design requirements of these laws apply and review requirements for residential dwelling units in the ADA and ABA Standards.

Participants are encouraged to view a previous webinar on this topic in advance of the upcoming session. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits. The webinar series is hosted by the ADA National Network in cooperation with the Board. Archived copies of previous Board webinars are available on the site.
