Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) of 1968

The Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) of 1968, as amended, stipulates that all buildings which are (1) financed with Federal funds, and (2) intended for use by the public, or which may result in employment or residence therein of physically handicapped persons, be designed and constructed in accordance  with standards prescribed by the ABA to ensure that such buildings are fully accessible to and usable by handicapped individuals. The Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) enacted by Congress in 1968 requires accessibility in all Federal Government owned and leased buildings and facilities, and also buildings and facilities constructed, altered or leased with certain Federal grants and loans.
