The Southeast ADA Center (SEADA Center), headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, serves eight states in the Southeast United States (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee). The Center partners with one affiliate organization in each state. The Affiliate Network includes Centers for Independent Living (CIL), University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education (UCEDD), non-profit organizations.
The SEADA Center answers questions, provides training, distributes materials and information about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other disability rights laws. The Center also conducts research on the ADA. Our current project is investigating the impact of intersectionality of race and disability on three ADA related outcomes: (1) employment; (2) short and long-term poverty; and (3) access to technology.
The Southeast ADA Center is one of ten regional ADA centers in the ADA National Network, funded by a grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) within the Administration for Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). As part of the ADA National Network, the Southeast ADA Center offers training and technical assistance to promote voluntary compliance with the ADA, including information about the rights and responsibilities of people with disabilities and the rights and responsibilities of businesses, as well as state and local governments to provide equal opportunity and full inclusion.
