Our Mission:

The City of Portland's Disability Program was re-established in 2006 in the Office of Neighborhood Involvement to connect, support and encourage collaborative civic engagement between the people of the disability community, neighborhoods and city government.


What We Do:


To help ensure equal access to City programs, services and activities, the City of Portland will reasonably modify policies/procedures and provide auxiliary aids/services to persons with disabilities. 


All events and activities should list a contact person with whom you can make an accommodation request.  For general information on making an ADA Title II request, go to: City ADA Title II requests or call Danielle Brooks, ADA Title II & Civil Rights Title VI Program Manager at 503-823-2559 or (TTY) 503-823-6868.
