The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) is commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), passed by Congress on July 26,1990. The ADA is a civil-rights law protecting individuals with disabilities, establishing standards for accessibility and accommodation in public spaces and the workplace. According to the ADA, an individual is disabled if the following applies: 

  •          The individual has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

  •          The individual has a history or record of such an impairment.

  •          The individual is perceived by others as having such an impairment.

The ADA is comprised of five titled categories. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, governmental activities, transportation, public accommodation, and telecommunication.
