81. What are my rights if DTA denies my reasonable accommodation request?
You can ask DTA Central to review a local office decision denying a disability accommodation.
The DTA local office should give you a written decision on your request for reasonable accommodation no later than 30 days from your request. If the local office denies your request or any part of it, you can ask the DTA Central Office Accommodation Appeal Committee to review the decision by filling out the back of the form and giving it to your worker. The Committee has 10 days to make a decision on the reconsideration request. You can also file your request directly with the Committee if the local office does not decide your request in 30 days. See DTA Online Guide: Cross Programs > Harper/ADA > ADA Reasonable Accommodation Decision Timelines.
You can appeal a DTA Central decision denying a disability accommodation
If the DTA Central Office Accommodation Appeal Committee Denies your request for accommodation in whole or in part or does not make a decision in 10 days from your request for a decision, you can request a hearing by filling out the back of the form and sending it to the Division of Hearings. See Part 7 on appeal rights.
Try to get a legal advocate to help you with your request for review and your appeal. See Appendix I for a list of legal services offices.
