The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.

What does ADA cover?

Questions regarding all aspects of the Americans With Disabilities Act, Fair Housing Amendments Act, and Architectural Barrier Act can be addressed to the Anne Arundel County ADA Coordinator located in the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities. The Americans With Disabilities Act covers:
