Resources for Accessibility

All individuals have the right to thrive in the communities in which they live, work, and play. Promoting equal access to the built environment as outlined by federal accessibility regulations and other accessible design initiatives is essential to this vision. Additionally, supporting building design that promotes occupant comfort can significantly impact people with disabilities; for example, improving air quality to mitigate symptoms of chronic asthma. It is also important to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy the same benefits afforded to others in both residential and commercial spaces, such as fitness programs that serve all ages and abilities.

  • Accessibility and Health
  • Aging-in-Place
  • Accessible Product Guide
