Title II for Government Entities
Title II applies to State and local government entities, and, in subtitle A, protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination on the basis of disability in services, programs, and activities provided by State and local government entities. Title II extends the prohibition on discrimination established by section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 794, to all activities of State and local governments regardless of whether these entities receive Federal financial assistance
Due to the complexity of Title II requirements, we have added this extra page for review
Each each municipality (State, city, county, school) in the country is required to have an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) self evaluation in place.  For those entities with 50 or more employees, A Transition Plan in place?  Many municipalities have not completed their transition plan even after 25 years.              

WHY...... The task is very comprehensive and challenging.

Municipalities around the country are being surveyed by the Department of Justice,  looking at programs, services and buildings for compliance to ensure that counties, cities, towns, and villages comply with the ADA by eliminating physical and communication barriers that prevent people with disabilities from participating fully in community life. Under the Project Civic Access, many are required to reach a settlement agreement for  not meeting the requirements of Title II.
