About

AccessIT is a pilot initiative of the State of Georgia ADA Coordinator's Office. Its design and purpose is to support Georgia state agency employees and ensure their information technology outlets are accessible to customers possessing a wide range of disabilities.

AccessIT, Georgia’s Accessible IT Initiative is named after a University of Washington national award winning program with the same name. The University of Washington AccessIT project was a five-year, grant funded initiative created by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the U.S. Department of Education. The grant concluded in September 2006.

Visit the University of Washington AccessIT project to learn more about their important work in the field of accessible information technology.  Additional agency projects and initiatives may be found within the Georgia AccessIT resource section.

The goal of the Georgia AccessIT initiative is to capitalize on national and international resources, providing Georgia State Agencies with current information and direct technical assistance and training.
