Commitment of Housing Authority or Owner
The objective of providing such information, if the applicant becomes a tenant, is to facilitate contact by the housing provider with the person or organization identified to assist in providing any delivery of services or special care to the tenant and to assist with resolving any tenancy issues arising during their tenancy.
Section 644 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-550, approved October 28, 1992) requires each applicant for federally assisted housing to be offered the option of providing information regarding an additional contact person or organization. By accepting the applicant’s application, the housing provider agrees to comply with the non-discrimination and equal opportunity requirements of 24 CFR section 5.105, including the prohibitions on discrimination in admission to or participation in federally assisted housing programs on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status under the Fair Housing Act, and the prohibition on age discrimination under the Age Discrimination Act of 1975.
