An HOA cannot discriminate due to a disability.

Absolutely anyone can discriminate against anyone else for any reason they like, except for the 7 protected classes listed in the U.S. Fair Housing act.   You can't change the zoning nor the setbacks nor the legal clearances, nor an appearance of the front of a unit just because of a disability... you still need to meet the codes and the HOA regulations.   If the property is "not accessible" and can't be made accessible with "reasonable accommodations", you likely will need to find somewhere else to move.  There is no legal mandate for an HOA to spend $30 million to make their "community" areas "accessible".  Nor is there any mandate to accept an external elevator at the front of the property.

There are all kinds of "good solutions", but you would need to be more specific about the issue if you want any "real" input.

NO!
No one can discriminate against anyone for any reason.

I really like what Sunnyview wrote so look at that and follow through if you can.

Have a great day

No. Organizations cannot discriminate under the Fair Housing Act for housing based on disability and in some instances entities must also make reasonable accommodations under the ADA. If you feel you are being discriminated against, please consider filing a complaint with HUD. That HUD office may also be able to refer you to an office in your state for support. Hope the links help.
