Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title II Program

Wheelchair Accessible Ramp with Sign

The County of Orange is committed to on-going efforts to provide access to public services to all clients of the County of Orange. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits all state and local governmental agencies from discriminating against a person with disabilities and from excluding participation in or denying benefits of programs, services or activities to persons with disabilities.

To ensure that individuals with disabilities can fully participate in and benefit from the public services offered by the County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination against persons with disabilities in June of 1994. The Board of Supervisors established a County ADA Title II Coordinator. That position is located within the CEO/Office of Risk Management and has corporate oversight over the departmental implementation of programs to support compliance with ADA II. 

The ADA Title II Office only handles corporate oversight over County Programs and Services. The ADA Title II Program does not handle ADA oversight over private businesses, landlord or HOA issues, and other public entities such as cities. Please utilize the resource links below to obtain additional information related to ADA outside the jurisdictional scope of the ADA Title II Program.
