  1. Mitigating Circumstances

If an applicant fails to meet one of more of the Applicant Selection Criteria, APG will determine whether it is possible to admit the applicant through consideration of mitigating circumstances or by applying reasonable accommodation.


Mitigating circumstances would be verifiable facts that would overcome or outweigh information already gathered in the resident screening process. Mitigating circumstances shall be verified and the verifier must corroborate the reason(s) given by the applicant for the disqualifying circumstances, and indicate that the prospect for lease compliance in the future is good because the reason for his/her disqualifying circumstances is either no longer in effect or otherwise controlled.  If the evidence of mitigating circumstances presented by the applicant relates to a change in medical condition or course of treatment, APG shall have the right to refer such information to persons qualified to evaluate evidence and verify the mitigating circumstance(s).
