Access Board Resolves 43 Architectural Barriers Act Cases Through Corrective Action in FY 2018

The U.S. Access Board was created in part to enforce the first federal law to address accessibility – the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (ABA). The ABA requires access to buildings or facilities that were designed, built, or altered with federal dollars or leased by federal agencies.

This report from the Board outlines their enforcement process and the procedures individuals can use to lodge complaints, and notes the variety of ABA cases that were resolved in fiscal year 2018, resulting in improved access at federal facilities such as post offices, military and veterans’ facilities, national parks and historic sites, and federal offices.
