About the Center

The New England ADA Center is one of 10 regional ADA Centers comprising the ADA National Network.  Since 1991, the ADA National Network has provided information, guidance and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), tailored to meet the needs of business, government and individuals at local, regional and national levels.

We are not enforcement or regulatory agency, but a helpful resource supporting the ADA’s mission to “make it possible for everyone with a disability to live a life of freedom and equality.” Call our toll free number to get your ADA questions answered 1-800-949-4232.
