Get Compliant with New DOJ Requirements for Government Website Accessibility

The Department of Justice has released new rules requiring state and local government websites, apps, and social media posts to conform with Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA guidelines within 2 or 3 years (depending on population) in order to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.

We know that government budget cycles can take time. We are here to help guide you through the steps of budgeting, auditing, and remediating your site well in advance of the deadline.  For localities on a July-June fiscal cycle, you will need to budget for remediation or a new site build as part of your FY2026 budget

To budget accurately, you will need to have a full accessibility audit conducted, including testing with a screen reader, prior to planning your FY2026 budget.

Elevage Digital can conduct an accessibility audit on your site and then provide an estimate for remediating your current site or for designing and building a new site that will be fully WCAG-compliant at launch.

All of this work takes time, so you need to start now in order to meet the deadline!

No Widgets Or Overlays

We do not use or recommend the use of accessibility widgets and overlays. The new DOJ rules apply to “web content” that includes “code or markup that defines the content’s structure, presentation, and interactions“. Widgets and overlays cannot edit the underlying code, structure, and interactions on your site in a way that makes it WCAG-compliant.
