About ADA Indiana
The mission of ADA-Indiana is to serve as a statewide resource for promoting the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act in Indiana.
ADA-Indiana consists of an identified group of regularly-attending Steering Committee Members who meet monthly. Their charge is to:
- Oversee implementation of the Steering Committee's goals and objectives
- Authorize allocations of grant monies
- Review ADA implementation in Indiana
Monthly meetings of ADA-Indiana generally occur on the second Thursday of the month, either in-person or by conference call. Our "in-person" meetings are scheduled for February, May, August, and October at the Indiana Government Center from 12:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Eastern (Indianapolis Time), the conference call meetings are from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern for the other months.If you would like to attend or participate in a meeting, please contact us for the meeting details.
ADA-Indiana was instituted in 1991, when the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research funded ten regional centers, the ADA National Network, to provide technical assistance to businesses and governmental agencies around the implementation of the ADA. Indiana became part of the six-state Great Lakes Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center coordinated by the University of Illinois at Chicago.
ADA-Indiana is guided by volunteer board members, referred to as the Steering Committee Members. ADA-Indiana leadership includes an elected Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and Past Chair.
ADA-Indiana receives funding from the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities and the Great Lakes ADA Center. The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, Center for Planning and Policy Studies was chosen by the Steering Committee to be the fiscal agent for ADA-Indiana
