Americans with Disabilities Act Reasonable Modification Process

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") protects persons with disabilities from discrimination by public entities such as the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. The ADA requires the Department provide persons with disabilities equal access and equal opportunity to benefit from the Department's programs, services, and activities.

If you believe you, or someone you know, is being prevented from participating in, or fully benefiting from, a Department program, service, or activity, because of a disability, and you believe that there is a reasonable change that the Department could make to prevent the discrimination, then you may ask for the reasonable change to the program, service, or activity. You may submit your request to the Department's ADA/Civil Rights Coordinator. You may submit your request in writing by email or through the mail. The Coordinator's mailing address is located on the left side of this page. You may also file your request by calling the Coordinator at 207-287-3707.

The Modification Request Policy and the ADA Reasonable Modification Request form (Word) may be found through links on the right side of this page.
