ADA Information

 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Information
If you are disabled and require special accommodation, please notify your local DSS Center Manager or call the Commissioner’s Response Unit (CRU) at 631-854-9935.

To request an ADA accommodation from any DSS staff member, the DSS staff member must notify their immediate unit supervisor who will inform the Center Manager or designee. The Center Managers must make reasonable efforts to recognize potential disabilities, based on the applicant/recipient’s disclosure or on an indication of an apparent disability, and approve or deny the ADA accommodation request.

 If you requested an accommodation and did not receive it, you may file an ADA grievance (appeal) by calling or  
 writing to:  
                   ADA Compliance Officer
