How To Register for Housing for Older Persons

A facility or community that meets at least one of the above requirements must register with the Florida Commission on Human Relations by sending a letter to the Commission to register as a facility for older persons.

The letter must be on the letterhead of the facility or community, and it must be signed by the president of the facility or community and mailed to the Commission (mailing address).

As of September 1, 2015, the Commission has determined that it will no longer require the $20 fee to register as housing for older persons. The documentation you provided will be processed as usual and the information placed on the Commissionís website.

FCHR ACCEPTS REGISTRATIONS AS A PROVIDER OF HOUSING FOR OLDER PERSONS UNDER THE FEDERAL OR FLORIDA FAIR HOUSING ACT BASED SOLELY ON THE WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS OF THE REGISTRANT. FCHR HAS NOT INDEPENDENTLY DETERMINED WHETHER THE REGISTRANT IN FACT MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW .

A fine in the amount of $500 will be assessed against any facility or community that knowingly submits false information in meeting these requirements.

Note for Management Companies:

To ensure your record of receipt, we recommend that you send your registration via certified mail.

IMPORTANT: Once you are registered, you will be issued an account identification number. Please remember to add this number to all renewal documentation.
