WIOA Operating Guidance : No
Subject:
Announcement of the Web-Based Survey and Site Visits for the Evaluation Study of the Accessibility of American Job Centers to Individuals with Disabilities

Purpose:
The U.S. Department of Labor (Department or DOL) is sponsoring a study to help policymakers and program administrators understand the level of accessibility of American Job Centers (AJCs) for individuals with disabilities. The purpose is to aggregate data to capture a broad overview of the degree to which AJCs, on average, are accessible to individuals with disabilities. The issue of accessibility is of particular interest to multiple stakeholders, including customers of the public workforce system, Congress, state and local leaders, AJC Managers, and the Department, as we seek to help identify ways to improve accessibility. The study will not be used to audit for compliance with laws and regulations regarding accessibility of AJCs.
