The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 bolstered the rights of people with disabilities to access goods and services on an equal basis with individuals without disabilities. The enforcement and method of accommodation can be varied among businesses and government entities. Generally speaking, public and private agencies make legitimate strides to comply with the ADA, but many are unaware of the comprehensive nature of the statute.

In March 2011, new regulations became effective, enhancing previous components of the ADA. Below is a list of links particularly relevant to the DHS community of stakeholders and consumers. Please note that not all of the publications have been updated to reflect the most recent regulatory changes.
