Today, the Department published a Small Entity Compliance Guide to help people who work for or with small state or local governments understand the new web content and mobile application (app) accessibility requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This guide follows the recent publication of a final rule to improve web and mobile app access for people with disabilities. The rule clarifies how state and local governments can meet their existing ADA obligations as many of their activities move to the digital space. The rule adopts a technical standard for web and mobile accessibility to ensure that people with disabilities can better access important public services like health care, voting, and education.

To find out more about the ADA, visit or call the Justice Department’s toll-free ADA information line at 1-800-514-0301 (voice) or 1-833-610-1264 (TTY).
