FHFA provides reasonable accommodations to qualified employees and job applicants with disabilities where appropriate. Employees and job applicants requiring reasonable accommodations should contact Joyce.Wilson@FHFA.gov. Determinations on requests for reasonable accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis.
A reasonable accommodation is any change to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done that enables an individual with a disability to apply for a job, perform job duties or receive equal access to job benefits.
Under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, federal agencies must provide reasonable accommodations when:
You can request a reasonable accommodation at any time during the application or hiring process or while on the job. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Architectural Barriers Act
In accordance with the
Architectural Barriers Act (ABA), the FHFA office building, work spaces, and
facilities are fully accessible to all people. The ABA is a federal law
that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities access to
buildings and facilities comparable to those provided to individuals who do not
have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the Agency.
The accessibility of FHFA’s office building, work spaces, and facilities allows
employees and visitors with disabilities to take part in all the
programs, services, and activities in FHFA buildings and work spaces.
The website www.access-board.gov
contains the ABA standards that apply to facilities designed, built, altered,
or leased with certain federal funds.
If you would like to file an
ABA-related complaint, please contact the access board at www.access-board.gov/aba-enforcement/file-a-complaint.
