About This Site

Explore Access is a web resource developed through a project of the Southwest ADA Center Regional Affiliate – Arkansas, a program of UA Partners for Inclusive Communities through funding from the Southwest ADA Center (90DP0092).

The Southwest ADA Center Regional Affiliate – Arkansas is one of a five state collaboration funded through the Southwest ADA Center, a program of the Independent Living Resource Utilization (ILRU)in Houston, Texas and serves Region VI within the ADA National Network. As a regional affiliate, the project focuses on increasing the capacity of Arkansas agencies—higher education institutions, criminal justice system agencies, and others—to improve access for people with disabilities. A leadership consortium, established by the project, will develop community leaders knowledgeable of the Americans with Disabilities Act who will serve as resources and trainers across the state. Project staff are available to provide training and technical assistance on topics related to the ADA—physical access, programmatic access and digital access.
