According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost one out of every five Americans has a disability. Awareness around reaching people with disabilities, and the fact that more grant funding is tied to an organization's compliance with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), makes understanding and implementing ADA compliance extremely important.
While most agree that pursuing increased access is the right choice, planning for accessibility can feel overwhelming to small staffs with limited resources. However, having an inclusive model doesn't solely equate with expensive site rehabilitations, and making changes to extend your reach needn't be for ADA compliance alone. Accommodating people with disabilities is not only the law, it's good for your organization.
