Title: Unlawful Discrimination on the Basis of Disability in Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance From, or Conducted by, the DoD  

The Department of Defense (DoD) is proposing to amend its regulation prohibiting unlawful discrimination on the basis of disability in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from, or conducted by, DoD. These revisions will update and clarify the obligations that section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, imposes on recipients of Federal financial assistance and DoD Components, and the obligations that the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) imposes on DoD Components. The updates will also clarify the procedures for resolving complaints regarding information and communication technology accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities in accordance with section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, as amended. The revision of 32 CFR part 56 supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
