Disability Services

About us
Our department is charged with insuring that residents and visitors with disabilities have equal access to the City’s programs, services and activities. We also strive to foster a welcoming and accessible community for individuals with disabilities through policy development, education and the formation of strategic partnerships with public, private and non-profit entities.

The City of New Haven does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. New Haven does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices.

 If you need a disability related accommodation (which may including auxiliary aids, sign language interpreters or materials in alternate format) or because of your disability need a modification to policy, practice or procedure to participate in City programs, services or activities please contact us.
