Disability Service Facilitator Program

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law and recognition of the gaps in service that remain for people with disabilities here in Pittsburgh, the City is implementing the Disability Service Facilitator Program to ensure efficient, integrated service to the disability community while minimizing potential violations to the ADA by City actions. This program will increase efficiency and quality of services, and help the City comply with all state and local accessibility laws.

COVID-19 Announcement 

All City of Pittsburgh staff who are able to work remotely are doing so in conjunction with Federal and State authorities. We are prioritizing the health and safety of Pittsburgh residents, many of whom are particularly vulnerable to the virus and its effects. 

The City is working hard to ensure that our programs and services remain accessible to all members of the public. We are looking into accessible technologies for community outreach for remotely held meetings. The City supports community efforts to strengthen and increase capacity alongside its already strong networks as we work to ensure access to the programs and services provided by the local government. 

At this time all City-County Task Force on Disabilities meetings have been canceled until further notice. 

Please also keep a close eye on the City's website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for changes and updates https://pittsburghpa.gov

The ADA Coordinator can be contacted by phone at remote telephone number 412-301-7041.
