Fair Housing Is Your Right

Housing discrimination is illegal.  If you believe you have experienced discrimination in renting or buying a home, getting a mortgage, obtaining housing insurance, seeking housing assistance, or in other housing-related activities, you can fire a complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  You can also file a complaint if you beleie you have been denied an equal opportunity to participate in a HUD program.  For more information, including how to file a complaint, please visit the HUD website at https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/fair_housing_equal_opp

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development publishes a booklet where you can find more information on fair housing.  It can be found here: https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/FHEO_BOOKLET_ENG.PDF

Housing Opportunities for Persons Living with Disabilities

The San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center (SG/PRC) is one of 21 regional centers in California operated by private nonprofit corporations which contract with the State Department of Developmental Services to coordinate services for people with developmental disabilities.

According to state law, a developmental disability is a disability attributable to mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism.  This term also includes handicapping conditions found to be closely related to mental retardation.  The disability must have originated before age 18, be expected to continue indefinitely, and constitute a substantial handicap for the individual.  A developmental disability does not include solely physical, learning or psychiatric condition.

San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center provides services to individuals who have the following:

  • Mental retardation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Other conditions closely related to mental retardation

In addition, persons who have a high risk of parenting a child with a developmental disability are eligible for retional center services.

Also eligible are those infants and toddlers age birth to 36 months for whom a need for early intervention services is documented and who meet criteria in one of the following categories:

  • Infants and toddlers with developmental delay
  • Infants and toddlers with established risk conditions
