USA.gov accessibility policy
Learn about USA.gov's commitment to accessibility and find tools to help you access government information and services.
USA.gov strives to make our website as accessible and usable as possible. We do this by following Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C, the web's governing body).
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998, is a federal law that requires government agencies to provide people with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities.
WCAG is a set of checkpoints and guidelines that help ensure that websites are designed and written properly. For example:
For those familiar with Section 508 and WCAG, we aim for A and AA compliance across our site. We also look for opportunities to meet AAA compliance.

If you have a problem using our site, you can report the issue to us online, or by calling us at 1-844-872-4681.

Where to find accessibility tools
