Demystifying the Federal Accessibility Requirements: ADAAG, UFAS, Fair Housing, etc.

Tuesday, June 17, 2003


Confused about which federal accessibility requirements apply to what? How does the ADAAG and UFAS interface? Which standard does a state government that receives federal funds use when remodeling an existing structure or designing a new building? How does the ADAAG apply to housing? What is the difference between transient housing addressed under the ADAAG and Multi-family housing addressed under the Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines? Confused? Join representatives from the US Access Board and HUD as they attempt to clarify the requirements. Take this opportunity to ask the "experts" your technical questions.
