Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility

In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual's ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.



ADA Accessibility

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights law that mandates the elimination of discrimination against persons with a qualifying disability. Local government agencies strive to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals to enable them to do the essential functions of a job. Local government agencies must also remove barriers to participation in government-sponsored programs, services and activities when necessary.

Hardee County attempts to make its information accessible to all individuals. If you use special adaptive equipment and encounter problems when using this website, please report them by contacting the County Manager's Office directly Danielle DeLeon or by calling (863) 773-9430. We will contact you to let you know if the information is available in an alternate format.
