Reference document pertaining to the authorization

About this document and download

A504v2009.1.pdf -- The National 504 Authorization Boilerplate.

The Boilerplate -- not the Wizard -- is the reference document pertaining to the Authorization.

Tip -- If you have already installed the 504 Wizard on your workstation, you can also access the Boilerplate via the 504 Wizard menu in MS-Word. On the other hand, if you just want to view or print the Boilerplate without installing the Wizard, this section is for you.

The Boilerplate contains the following information:

  • A 'Read This First' section covering general information about the Authorization, as well as the differences between this version and the previous version.
  • The Authorization standardized text itself, on which the 504 Wizard is based.
  • Appendix A: The standardized text for Collateral Conditions.
  • Appendix B: A description of state specific options within the Collateral Conditions.
  • Appendix C: A list of Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) pertaining to the Authorization.
  • Appendix D: Standardized text for the Opinion of CDC Counsel.
