This is a list of federal and state programs that provide information on disability-related information on benefits, law, services, education, and accessibility.

United States Access Board

The Access Board is an independent federal agency devoted to accessibility for people with disabilities. Created in 1973 to ensure access to federally funded facilities, the Board is a leading source of information on accessible design. The Board develops and maintains design criteria for buildings, transit vehicles, telecommunications equipment, electronic and information technology, recreation facilities, and healthcare diagnostic equipment. It also provides technical assistance and training on those requirements and on accessible design and continues to enforce accessibility standards for federally-funded facilities.
