The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and related federal and state laws and regulations forbid discrimination against those who have disabilities. Furthermore, these laws require federal aid recipients and other government entities to take affirmative steps to reasonably accommodate the disabled and ensure that their needs are equitably represented in programs, services and activities. The IIse Newell Fund for the Performing Arts, Inc. - INCONCERT will make every effort to ensure that its facilities, programs, services and activities are accessible to those with disabilities.
