The DBTAC-Great Lakes ADA Center is launching the "The ADA Community Poll" in the six states they serve (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin). It has been nearly 20 years since President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law and DBATC-Great Lakes is interested in learning more about the perceptions of people with disabilities, their family members, and individuals who work with people with disabilities regarding the implementation of the ADA in their communities.

The results of the poll will be used to "grade" your community on its response to the ADA and will become a tool to educate policy makers, administrators and the public about the ADA. DBATC-Great Lakes encourages people to participate in this survey to learn more about their community’s response to the ADA.

The poll will be conducted during the entire month of May and the final "Community Report Card" will be available sometime in late June or early July.
