The California JPIA is currently accepting applications for the second year of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Financing Program. This program provides members with an opportunity to obtain funding that might otherwise be difficult to procure for ADA transition plan development or the removal of ADA-related barriers.
The program is in the second year of a five-year period, with an annual call for applications.
Members selected to receive funds through the ADA Financing Program must repay the amount, plus interest, with level annual payments of principal and interest over a five-year term. Additional details regarding the requirements and terms of the program are outlined in the ADA Financing Program application.
The application can be found here, and it is in a fillable PDF format. It is highly recommended to download a copy of the application so that partial progress in completing an application can be saved.
Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2020. After this date, members will need to reapply during the next application cycle. All members will be notified of their application status by March 4, 2020.
This program is part of a larger coordinated effort to help members make progress towards compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
If you have any questions about the ADA Financing Program or the Authority’s other ADA-related programs and resources, please contact Abraham Han, Administrative Analyst.
