Disability Accommodation Assistance Program

The Cal Poly Disability Accommodation Assistance Program (DAAP) provides funding assistance for Cal Poly employees that qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you are a person with a disability and are in need of accommodation(s) from the University in order to perform your work duties, please consult with your supervisor and/or Human Resources about how to obtain accommodations through the interactive process. Once you have gone through the interactive process and have established the nature of the accommodations that are required, then a request for DAAP funding can be submitted to the Civil Rights & Compliance Office for consideration. Please contact us at (805) 756-6770 or at crco@calpoly.edu for more details about DAAP and eligibility requirements.
