State of Colorado HB21-1110

Accessibility Law for Colorado State and Local Government

HB21-1110 makes it a state civil rights violation for a government agency to exclude people with disabilities from receiving services or benefits because of lack of accessibility.

Any Colorado government entity that doesn’t meet State of Colorado OIT’s web accessibility standards could be subject to injunctive relief, meaning a court order to fix the problem; actual monetary damages; or a fine of $3,500 payable to the plaintiff, who must be someone from the disability community.  


  • Legislation places responsibility for compliance on both platform providers and content owners.
  • OIT has statutory authority in C.R.S. 24-85-101 to establish statewide accessibility standards. Previously, there was no formal process and little enforcement. 
  • All state agencies and local governments must be compliant with state standards by July 1, 2024.
