Americans with Disability Act (ADA)

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted in 1973 and protects the rights of individuals with disabilities against discrimination from programs that receive Federal Funds. This Civil Rights Law was the first step in providing accessibility and non-discrimination to individuals with Disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act paved the way for the Americans with Disabilities Act, a Civil Rights Law the protects individuals from disabilities against discrimination regardless of the funding source of the program, activity or service.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Civil Rights law that was passed in 1990. The focus of the ADA is to provide individuals with disabilities protection against discrimination based on their disability. While there are five titles under the ADA, DelDOT falls under Title I Employment and Title II Public Entities.

Title II of the ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities by Public Entities. DelDOT, as a Public Entity is required to ensure that all of its programs, services and activities are accessible to individuals with disabilities.

DelDOT understands and is committed to providing accessibility for all users, customers, and beneficiaries of our programs, activities and public services.
