The mission of the Mayor's Office on Disability is to ensure that every program, service, benefit, activity and facility operated or funded by the City of San Francisco is fully accessible to, and useable by, people with disabilities. MOD is responsible for overseeing the implementation and local enforcement of the City's obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act as well as other federal, state and local access codes and disability rights laws.

The Mayor’s Office on Disability was created by Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr., after a series of meetings with members of the disability community in 1998 and early 1999.

These meetings recognized the need for a coordinated, centralized response to ADA compliance, located in the Mayor’s Office.

The Mayor and the Board of Supervisors funded the new Office in July, 1999, which opened its doors in October, 1999.

The Mayor’s Office on Disability (MOD) conducts a variety of programs:

  • Implementation of City Wide ADA Transition Plan
  • Implementation of City Wide Self-Evaluation
  • City Wide ADA Grievance Procedure
