Question: A Federally assisted disaster relief program is trying to streamline its services and provide one-stop shopping for residents with special needs. As part of this effort, program planners decide to coordinate all “special” services, such as language interpreters, sign language interpreters, and readers for the visually impaired, at a single facility at the edge of town. Individuals who require these services must therefore travel farther than other residents. Providing services in this way:

Options:

  1.  Is discriminatory because it serves persons with disabilities and limited English proficiency in a different manner than the rest of the population.
  2.  Is a good strategy because it improves overall services and provides needed services to persons with special needs.
  3.  Is acceptable because there is no intent to discriminate.
  4.  Is permissible only if the facility is located on a major public transportation route.
