The Disability Rights Section works to
achieve equal opportunity for people with disabilities in the United States
by implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Through its
multi-faceted approach toward achieving compliance with the ADA, this
Section works to make this goal a reality. The Section's enforcement,
certification, regulatory, coordination, and technical assistance
activities, required by the ADA, combined with an innovative mediation
program and a technical assistance grant program, provide a cost-effective
and dynamic approach for carrying out the ADA's mandates. The Section also
carries out responsibilities under Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation
Act, the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act, and Executive Order
Section activities affect six million businesses and
non-profit agencies, 80,000 units of state and local government, 49 million
people with disabilities, and over 100 Federal agencies and commissions in
the Executive Branch.
