Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is meant to ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of civic life. Under Title II (42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq.), all state/local governments must follow the ADA regardless of their size. More specifically, Title II prohibits state and local governments from discriminating against people with disabilities in their programs and activities. Title II also sets forth the applicable structural accessibility requirements for state and local agencies that provide services in public education, transportation, recreations, health care, social services, courts, voting, emergency services and town meetings. The ADA guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to enjoy employment opportunities, purchase goods and services, and participate in state and local government programs.

Any person with a disability and needs accommodation to access a city facility or program can make a request to the City by completing an Accommodation Request form. Monroe’s specific notification polices, and procedures can be found here
