See measurable progress in 90 days or less.

More than 30 years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, many public agencies face challenges in meeting their ADA Title II requirements. Chief among these is the need for more funds, skills, or resources to complete vital and necessary work. In response to these problems and to help you make real and immediate progress, we’ve developed our Kickstart program. 

BlueDAG’s Kickstart program is designed to help public entities get a jump on their ADA initiatives. The program begins with an assessment of where you stand in terms of milestones and goals. We then develop a plan to help you make progress. Tools, planning, and guidance are integrated into the process, and short-term achievable milestones provide measurable wins and meaningful outcomes.

Set goals and milestones for real, lasting change.

The Kickstart program is flexible and can be tailored to meet each agency’s specific needs. Some common features include setting up an ADA task force, developing policies and procedures, and training staff. We’ll help you assess your needs, set goals and milestones, and track your progress as you start making real and lasting change.

Enrolling in Kickstart helps ensure that your entity can meet its ADA Title II requirements effectively, demonstrate substantial progress, and start creating a more inclusive community for everyone.
