Justice Department settles with Hawaii apartment builders over disability discrimination

Posted on October 30, 2023

  • The Justice Department reached a settlement with a Hawaii developer and others who were accused of not designing and building five multifamily housing complexes with the required accessible features.
  • This violates the Fair Housing Act, which is a law that ensures housing is accessible to everyone.
  • The agreement requires the companies to pay a fine and make changes to their properties, like adding ramps, accessible parking, and making apartments easier for people with disabilities to enter and use.
  • This agreement is meant to make sure that everyone has equal access to housing in these apartment complexes.
