Puerto Rico housing authority to pay $885K for discrimination

An agreement has been negotiated by HUD between the Puerto Rico Public Housing Authority (PRPHA) and residents of the housing authority with disabilities. The agreement resolves allegations that the El Trebol public housing development was inaccessible to persons with disabilities for more than a year because of inoperable elevators. Under the terms of the agreement, PRPHA will spend $884,640 to repair existing inoperable elevators and install six new elevators, and pay $23,760 to the four residents who filed the initial complaint. In addition, $32,400 will be paid to 16 other residents with disabilities who were harmed by the prolonged elevator outages.
