Accessible Communities Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Kitsap County Accessible Communities Advisory Committee (ACAC) is to support disability awareness and access for people with disabilities through technical assistance and other resources funded by the Accessible Communities Act (Chapter 215, Laws of 2010). 

Through outreach efforts we offer education, advocacy and identify accessiblity focused projects to ensure inclusion for all residents of Kitsap County. Our goal is to create and support an inclusive community where all people have equal access.

Meetings are open to the public. People who represent all disabilities are encouraged to get involved.
