Facility and building accessibility for people with disabilities

In general, people with disabilities have the right to access every part of their communities. The facility accessibility requirements can be complicated, because they depend on factors like:

  • Whether the facility is housing 
  • When the facility was built
  • Whether the facility is private or government-owned
  • What accessibility changes are possible and required

People with disabilities have a right to enforce accessibility requirements. They should contact their regional ADA Network center at 1-800-949-4232 to discuss whether the facility complies with accessibility requirements and how to file a complaint if it does not comply.
