Reasonable Accommodation (renting from relatives)
Federal regulations do not allow the Housing Authority to subsidize the rent of any participant if the property owner is the parent, child, grandparent, grandchild, sister or brother of any member of the participant's household unless as a reasonable accommodation for a family member with disabilities, then only if the unit meets a specific need of the disabled family member as certified by a health care professional.
The relative builds or buys a house that has wheelchair ramps and wide doorways and the unit is located next door to the relative who assists you with activities that the tenant can not perform.
Also, if you have a disability need, such as needing another bedroom for medical equipment or live-in- aide, etc, contact your housing authority. You will still need a written statement from a health care professional stating that you need a reasonable accommodation.
