Peace Corps: Standard Operating Procedure for Providing Reasonable Accommodations


The Peace Corps’ (PC) Reasonable Accommodation for People with Disabilities (RAPD) program is administered by the American Diversity Program (ADP). The ADP Manager (ADPM) oversees the PC’s reasonable accommodation process. The PC’s Reasonable Accommodations for People with Disabilities (RAPD) program is designed to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified employees or applicants for employment. An accommodation is a change involving the workplace that enables a person with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities. Many individuals with disabilities can apply for and perform jobs without the need for an accommodation. However, where workplace barriers exist, such as physical obstacles or rules regarding how a job is performed, the need for an accommodation may be necessary. A reasonable accommodation serves two fundamental purposes. First, a reasonable accommodation removes barriers that prevent people with disabilities from applying for or performing jobs for which they are qualified. Second, a reasonable accommodation enables the Agency to expand the pool of qualified workers, thus allowing the PC to benefit from the talents of people who might otherwise be arbitrarily barred from employment.

Effective procedures for processing reasonable accommodation request will advance both these goals. They will enable the PC to handle requests in a prompt, fair, and efficient manner; they will assure that individuals with disabilities understand how to approach the system and know what to expect; and they will be a resource both for individuals with disabilities and for PC employees, so that all parties can understand the legal requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
