Other Laws

There are other federal civil rights laws which address disability discrimination in other situations, such as housing, air travel, and federal programs and services. There are also laws which provide for certain benefits for people with disabilities, such as supplemental income or special education services for children. These laws are often very different from the ADA, with their own purposes, definitions, and requirements.

You can find out more about other federal laws, programs, and resources through the federal government’s disability information portal at Disability.gov.
