The ADA National Network consists of 10 regional centers and an ADA Knowledge Translation Center. The regional centers are distributed throughout the United States to provide local assistance and foster implementation of the ADA. Funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), the ADA National Network provides 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. The Network is not an 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."
The 10 regional centers along with the ADA Knowledge Translation Center, work together to develop projects and events of national significance. Each regional center also focuses on the specific needs of the residents who reside within its service area. The regional nature of the ADA National Network is critical to ensuring the network can adequately support the diverse population of ADA Stakeholders throughout the country.
