 EXCEPTIONS TO SUBSIDY STANDARDS [24 CFR 982.403(a) & (b)]

The CRHA shall grant exceptions from the subsidy standards if the family requests and CRHA determines the exceptions are justified by the relationship, age, sex, health or disability of family members, or other individual circumstances.

The CRHA will grant an exception upon request as an accommodation for persons with disabilities. Circumstances may dictate a larger size than the subsidy standards permit when persons cannot share a bedroom because of a need, such as a:

  • Verified medical or health reason; or
  • Elderly persons or persons with disabilities who may require a live-in aide.
