Rulemaking and Regulations by the Office for Civil Rights – Disability Discrimination (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act)

The U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (OCR) asks for written public comments on possible amendments to their regulations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, which prohibits disability discrimination in programs that receive federal financial assistance, including schools and postsecondary institutions. The public may  submit comments and suggestions.

 It would be appreciated if longer and more detailed comments were submitted by the end of June 2022, but all comments submitted prior to the issuance of any notice of proposed rulemaking will be reviewed.
