The Americans with Disability Act, Title II Statement

To ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in and benefit from the public services offered by the County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination against persons with disabilities in June of 1994.

The Board of Supervisors established a County ADA Title II Coordinator who is located within the CEO/Office of Risk Management and has corporate oversight of the County of Orange departments and agencies compliance with ADA II. The ADA Title II Office only handles corporate oversight over County Programs and Services. The ADA Title II Program does not handle ADA oversight over private businesses, landlord or HOA issues, and other public entities such as cities. Please utilize the resource links below to obtain additional information related to ADA outside the jurisdictional scope of the ADA Title II Program.

Website Accessibly

Orange County continues its commitment to providing a website accessible to the largest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. To further this commitment, Orange County staff contracted an independent third-party (Promet Source) for an accessibility audit and review according to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level A and AA guidelines. Due to Orange County’s integration with third-party external vendors and elements, areas within the site remain beyond Orange County’s control. These elements included but is not limited to:

  • Google Map or Calendar Events

Until the integration with these external vendors is resolved, Orange County can only achieve a partial level of conformance according to WCAG. Orange County is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of the website and in doing so adheres to many of the available standards and guidelines.

To further our commitment to nondiscrimination, we are continuing to work on the website to ensure the site conforms to Level A and AA World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Such guidelines detail best practices for ensuring assistive technology users can access the site. The guidelines also make the site more user friendly for all people.

Should anyone find information or functionality which is inaccessible, please contact the County ADA Title II Coordinator, April Chase via email at April.Chase@ocgov.com. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate.
