State of Utah


On June 18, 2024, the U.S. Department of Justice notified the State of Utah that it is violating the ADA’s integration mandate by failing to provide employment and day services to youth and adults and with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. The Department’s investigation revealed that Utah unnecessarily relies on segregated settings—including sheltered workshops and day facilities—to provide these services. As a result, thousands of people with I/DD in Utah spend their days separated from their communities when they could instead work paid community-based jobs and participate in community activities of their choosing. Utah’s failure to provide employment and day services in integrated settings also places other individuals with I/DD in the state, including transition age youth entering adult services, at serious risk of entering these segregated settings.
