About Accessibility

The Indiana Arts Commission defines accessibility as the design of environments, products, or services, for people with disabilities. Accessibility can be linked to the process of developing products and environments that can be utilized by the widest possible range of ability groups, operating within the widest possible range of situations. As a federally supported government agency, Indiana Arts Commission grant recipients must comply with all ADA requirements.

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.
  • If you're unsure how to tell if you're being compliant with IAC standard, click here to review warranty methods.
