504 Grievance Policy Adopted by Village
Village of Avon recently received a grant under
the federal Community Development Block Grant Program
for housing rehabilitation purposes. Recipients
of federal funds are required to adopt a grievance
procedure for the prompt and equitable resolution
of complaints from those who feel they have been
discriminated against based on disability. The Village
of Avon has adopted such a procedure pursuant to
24 CFR Parts 8.53 and 8.54, which state in part
that, No otherwise qualified individual with
a disability in the United States... shall, solely
by reason of her or his disability, be excluded
from participation in, be denied the benefits of,
or be subjected to discrimination under any program,
service or activity receiving Federal financial
. This may include, but is
not limited to, housing and employment assisted
with federal funds. This law, commonly referred
to as Section 504, also insures that the Village
will not discriminate in admission or access to
jobs, federal programs or activities based on disability.
The Mayor has been designated as the Grievance Coordinator.
A copy of the procedure is available in Village
Hall, 74 Genesee Street, Avon.
