The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination and provides for equal access and opportunity in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.
The ADA National Network consists of ten regional ADA Centers located throughout the United States. We are your comprehensive "one-stop" resource for ADA information, guidance and training.
Doors present some of the most common accessibility issues. Luckily, these common problems can often be resolved by simply adjusting door closers.

The results of the ADA Systematic Review Project Year 1 are available as a webpage and PDF file.

This booklet is designed to provide answers to some of the most often asked questions about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Disability law is an area of law that overlaps with many other areas of law – including employment law, administrative law, elder law, consumer law, construction law, insurance law, school law, health law, social security law, and civil rights law. This handbook, available as a webpage and PDF file, is meant to provide basic information and resources about disability rights and an overview for entities that have obligations under federal disability laws.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) revised the ADA Title II and Title III regulations, which amend the requirements for State and Local Governments and Places of Public Accommodation. Many regulations took effect on March 15, 2011 and some requirements were fully effective on March 15, 2012. To provide guidance and a topic-focused overview of specific changes, the ADA National Network created a Fact Sheet Series, available as a webpage and PDF file in English and Spanish.
On the ADA Anniversary - July 26 and throughout the year, celebrate the progress made through implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in your workplaces, schools and communities. While much progress has been made, much remains to be done.
