Complaints that a program, service, or activity of CDAC is not accessible to persons with
disabilities should be directed to the program manager.
CDAC will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of
individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable
