SUB-RECIPIENTS – COMPLIANCE BY ENTITIES RECEIVING FEDERAL FUNDS

Are you a contractor receiving federal funding?

Under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, those who receive federal funds – officially called “sub-recipients” – must comply with the acts' provisions. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) distributes these funds and monitors compliance. MDOT SHA has a policy guide to help you understand and comply with the laws' administrative and technical provisions.
