    • ADA Requirements –  A universal or inclusive environment for the arts is one that is usable by everyone: people with and without disabilities and people of all ages. It is an environment with buildings, grounds, and communication systems that are usable by all. It is an environment where chosen programs and exhibits reflect a commitment to being part of an inclusive community. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into federal law in 1990, requires that all public programs and services be made accessible to all people, regardless of an individual’s physical or developmental challenges. The State of New Jersey/Hudson County Local Arts Program (LAP) grant program supports this law.To ensure that the arts are accessible to all, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts requires that all applicant groups submit an ADA Organizational Plan, adopted by formal resolution of the organizations’ boards of directors.Your ADA Plan is constitutes 15% of your total LAP score, so it is imperative that you complete both the chart and the “Accessibility” question in the online application. Please see pages 14-16 of the FY22 LAP Guidelines for more information on ADA compliance and completing your ADA plan. For more information contact:
