The Americans with Disablities Act (ADA) is a federal law with significant impact on New Jersey counties, towns, cities, and villages. The U.S. Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, making it the country's first civil rights legislation designed to meet the needs of disabled people, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The law prohibits discrimination in the provision of public services, employment, telecommunications and public accommodations.

NJRPA offered a workshop in two locations in October 2017. The workshop aimed to identify ADA requirements for programs, policies, and special events and provide solutions to common issues in attaining compliancy.
