Colorado HB21-1110 Compliance: Website Accessibility Training and Services

colorado state flag

If you are a Colorado state agency or county government, you must meet the HB21-1110 compliance requirements by the deadline of July 1, 2024. You need to make sure to start as soon as possible because HB21-1110 requires that all technology, both external and internal facing be accessible.

Completing an accessibility project – even for professional service providers – can take weeks if not months so it is highly recommended you start in January 2024 if you have not already.
