What is Section 504?

Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act was the first disability civil rights law to be enacted in the United States. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in federal entities, or programs that receive federal financial assistance, and set the stage for enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Section 504 protects children and adults with disabilities from exclusion, and unequal treatment in schools, jobs and the community.
