Accessibility

Policy Research Associates, Inc. (PRA) has a strong commitment to making our materials and the materials of our projects accessible to people with disabilities. Accessibility is consistent with the mission of PRA, which aims to create positive social change through technical assistance, research, and training for people who are disadvantaged. The nature of our work, which largely consists of distributing information to the field, mandates that we adhere to the underlying principles of accessibility.
