TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
Since 1996, TransCen, Inc., a Rockville, Maryland non-profit corporation dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through meaningful work and community inclusion, has operated the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center. Funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), the Center is one of the 10 regional ADA Centers that comprise the ADA National Network. The Centers provide information, guidance and training on how to implement the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and “assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities.” Though federally funded, the ADA Centers are not enforcement or regulatory agencies, but helpful resources for individuals and entities with rights and responsibilities under the ADA.
