The Pacific ADA Center supports multiple ADA Coordinator Networks within federal region 9—providing regular training on ADA topics and an opportunity for ADA Coordinators to share information and ask questions of one another.

1M people across the entire federal region 9 benefit from improved access to state & local government programs & services

State and local government agencies must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, also known as the ADA. As part of that compliance, these agencies are required to employ a person who is responsible for assuring their compliance with the ADA—typically called ADA Coordinators.

The Pacific ADA Center works to support multiple ADA Coordinator Networks within federal region 9, which includes Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada and the Pacific Basin Territories of American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam. These networks provide regular training on ADA topics and an opportunity for ADA Coordinators to share information and ask questions of one another.

By enhancing ADA Coordinators’ knowledge of the ADA, the Center has improved ADA compliance of State and local government agencies throughout our region. As a result, at least 1,000,000 people across the entire federal region 9 benefit from improved access to state and local government programs and services.
