 Next Steps
Two mobility impaired tenants filed a complaint with HUD after management failed to respond to their request for a reasonable accommodation to restore door stops to unit and common area doors.  FHEO assigned the case to the Ohio Civil Rights Commission to investigate.  Conciliation was unsuccessful and so complainants are awaiting a decision by the OCRC.
