The IDEA Center is within the School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo. It is dedicated to improving the design of environments and products so that they are more usable, safer, and more appealing to a broad range of people.

This project, at the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, promotes the development of accessible information and telecommunications technologies.

AccessIT promotes the use of electronic and information technology (E&IT) for students and employees with disabilities in educational institutions at all academic levels. The web site features the "AccessIT Knowledge Base", a searchable database of questions and answers regarding accessible E&IT, and the "Accessible University" mock site, a tool for demonstrating web accessibility principles.

This site includes a searchable database of assistive technologies and disability related products, equipment, and architectural elements.

This searchable collection contains over 7,400 documents on the ADA.

This site, funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), provides information about the ADA, as well as each of the ten regional ADA Centers.

The ADA requires the establishment of telephone relay services for individuals who use telecommunications display or similar devices. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enforces these regulations and offers technical assistance to the public. The FCC also enforces provisions of the Telecommunications Act which address the accessibility of telecommunications equipment and services, as well as television programming.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), through the Federal Transit Administration, offers technical assistance on the transportation provisions of Title II of the ADA.
