The City of Richmond strives to ensure that everyone who lives, works or visits Richmond is able to participate and feels included in all aspects of community life. The Accessibility and Poverty Reduction section works to identify and remove barriers to participation so the City’s built environment, programs and services are open, accessible and appropriate for everyone, regardless of means or ability.
