Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), Anne Arundel County Government will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.


Title II of the ADA contains the requirements for state and local government entities. Title II prohibits discrimination based on disability in all aspects of government programs, services, and activities.

Title II requires that, on request, county government will provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for people with disabilities.

Title II requires reasonable modifications to policies, procedures, and practices in order to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in all programs and services.

Title II of the ADA requires local and state governments with greater than 50 employees to establish the position of ADA Coordinator. The ADA Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the efforts of the Anne Arundel County Government to comply with Title II of the ADA and investigate any complaints of non-compliance with ADA by any County-owned property and county-operated programs and services.
