Reasonable Accommodation Policy
DPR is required by federal and District laws to provide equal benefits of the services, programs or activities provided by the agency to qualified individuals with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the DC Human Rights Act of 1977, as amended, seek to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities. DPR has a legal obligation to provide reasonable accommodations as required to ensure that our programs and services are inclusive and accessible to all community members with and without disabilities. Beyond its legal obligations, DPR is fully committed to providing accommodations that will allow its community members with disabilities to participate and contribute at the highest levels.
If an individual with a disability requests a reasonable accommodation to participate in any of DPR’s services, programs or activities, please contact DPR and visit the DC Office of Disability Rights to learn more about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the DC Government’s reasonable accommodation policy.
