Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Federal Requirements
The Palm Beach TPA is required by federal agencies to sign assurances that all recipients of federal funds allocated by the TPA have ADA transition plans in place. ADA transition plans outline a jurisdiction's assessment and plans for bringing their infrastructure into compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The TPA has created a document summarizing the ADA Transition Plan Requirements for recipients of TPA Federal Funding.
ADA Transition Plan Training
As a demonstration of the Palm Beach TPA's commitment to assist local governments to comply with ADA Transition Plan requirements for sub-recipients of federal funds including TPA transportation funding allocations, the TPA hosted a training workshop on Oct. 11, 2018. The training was conducted by Dean Perkins, the ADA Coordinator for the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT). Following are training materials from the workshop:
