The President linked ADA’s anniversary with the benefits of the recently enacted Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), signed into law during the ADA anniversary week.

WIOA breaks down barriers and streamlines services with the goal of moving more individuals with disabilities into competitive, integrated employment. “And as we approach the 24th anniversary of the ADA, this bill takes new steps to support Americans with disabilities who want to live and work independently,” the President said at the signing of WIOA on July 22, 2014.
