Office of state ada coordinator
Louisiana R.S. 46:2591 et seq. established the Office of the State Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator, effective Aug. 1, 2021. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on disability in all areas of public life, including employment, school, transportation and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the office is to serve as the coordinating body for ADA compliance for all state agencies within the executive branch of state government. Responsibility for compliance is shared by each state agency with additional, specific responsibilities assigned to Agency ADA Coordinators. The office also provides educational and technical support for state agencies so that those programs, services and activities provided by the state are accessible and usable by all residents.
If you have ADA questions related to employment with or services provided by Louisiana’s state agencies, feel free to reach out to the ADA coordinator for the applicable state agency (see directory below), or contact the State ADA Coordinator for assistance.
