Submit A Comment | View Comments

The Justice Department today announced an agreement with the Town of Poestenkill, New York, to improve access for people with disabilities to civic life in Poestenkill. The agreement was reached under Project Civic Access (PCA), the Justice Department’s initiative to ensure that cities, towns and counties throughout the country comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This agreement is the first to be posted on the Department’s newly redesigned PCA web page. The newly redesigned web page allows users to identify PCA agreements in two different ways: by geographic location using a clickable map or a state list; and by chronological order, when the agreement became effective.
