OLGT 2016-17: Accommodation Request Processing Under Harper, et al. vs. DTA
Harper, et al. v. Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) was a class action lawsuit brought by disabled clients alleging that the Department violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to provide disabled clients with equal access to Department benefits. Improving services to these clients is the objective of the Harper, et al. v. Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) settlement. Effective with BEACON Build 48.3, scheduled for April 4, 2016, multiple enhancements are being made to Views and other BEACON functionality. These enhancements will assist Client Assistance Coordinators (CAC) and other DTA staff with tracking and providing client accommodations. The Department is committed to ensuring that all applicants and clients have equal access to all benefits and services regardless of disability.
