Able Access: Accessibility Assessments 2021- 2022

The South Carolina State Library is offering two types of Accessibility Assessments through the Able Access Project, available to public libraries in South Carolina:

  1. ADA Accessible Facilities Assessments
  2. Accessible Websites Assessments

These assessments help libraries ensure that their facilities, services, and websites are accessible to all members of the public, including those with disabilities, and that they meet legal standards for accessibility.

This Project is funded with Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the South Carolina State Library (SCSL).


Applications Closed

Applications have closed as of November 5, 2021.

Libraries may apply to receive one or both types of assessments. Up to six assessments will be awarded, with recipients determined based on completeness of the project application, demonstrated need, and project readiness. Project recipients will be notified by November 19, 2021 and the assessments will be completed by June 15, 2022.
