The purpose of the Pacific ADA Center is to build a partnership between the disability community and the general public by enhancing understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) through education and technical assistance.
The Pacific ADA Center is one of ten Regional Centers in the ADA National Network set up across the United States to provide information and referral, training, consultation, and technical assistance to the business, state and local government, and disability communities about their responsibilities and rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Center includes numerous consultants, a small staff, and subcontracts with more than 20 entities regionwide. The Center participates in nationwide training projects and the development of materials for broad based distribution. Pacific ADA Center receives direct and current information from the Departments of Justice, Transportation, Education, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission to implement the Americans with Disabilities Act.
