Wondering how you can better serve people in the disability community? Looking for how to make accommodations that make sense and work for everyone? We want to help make the arts accessible to all. Here you will find practical resources for completing grant applications as well as resources for trying new approaches and creating an inviting environment for everyone.

  • Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and providing accommodations for people with disabilities is not only your legal responsibility, it’s good business practice and it’s the right thing to do.
  • Make sure you have a plan in place before being presented with an accessibility accommodation request. You can utilize our self-assessment checklist below to consider some of the ways you will need to be accessible to the public with your public funding.

Standards for Indiana Arts Commission Grant Recipients
