Community Access focuses on the accessibility of State and Local as well as Public Accommodations; known as Title II + Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
State and Local (Title II)
Our State and Local initiatives focus on ensuring that all programs, services and activities provided by a jurisdiction are accessible to, and usable by, people with disabilities.
Public Accommodations (Title III)
Our Public Accommodations initiatives focus on ensuring full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, and facilities available to the public. Examples include ensuring access to places of lodging (such as inns and hotels), restaurants, bars, theaters, grocery stores, rental establishments, amusement parks, day care centers etc.
