Did you know that the Americans with Disability Act, known as the ( “ADA”), which applies to both State and Local government prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by public entities?

Subtitle A of the ADA protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination on the basis of disability in the services, programs, or activities of all State and local governments. It extends the prohibition of discrimination in federally assisted programs established by section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to all activities of State and local governments, including those that do not receive Federal financial assistance, and incorporates specific prohibitions of discrimination on the basis of disability from titles I, III, and V of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
