14VAC10-10-120. Rental housing assistance.

A. If the admitted claimant resides in a non-handicapped-accessible rental unit and moves to a handicapped accessible rental unit, the Virginia Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Program (Program) will reimburse the difference between the former monthly rental payment and the cost for the appropriate handicapped accessible rental unit of similar size and quality based on cost per square foot. Any substantial increases in the square footage of the handicapped accessible unit to be reimbursed must be attributable to medically necessary requirements and not exceed the overall guidelines utilized when the Program constructs additional space for an admitted claimant.

B. The handicapped accessible rental unit should meet all applicable regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA (42 USC § 1201 et seq.)). Exceptions to meeting the ADA regulations must be approved by the Virginia Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Program's Board of Directors. Prior to providing reimbursement the Program may require certification of the rental unit's suitability for the admitted claimant or compliance with this policy.
