The Olmstead Commission Advisory Council

The North Dakota Olmstead Commission has formed the Olmstead Commission Advisory Council, to increase the voice and involvement of persons with lived experience in Olmstead Commission work. The Council is comprised primarily of individuals with disabilities, their parents, guardians or family members, and advocates.

This is intended to be a group of individuals with lived experience that will meet regularly, to provide feedback and context to what is presented/discussed at Olmstead Commission meetings, and to take part in ongoing projects to bring the voice of experience to the table. The Council will provide knowledge to the Olmstead Commission on community living policies and programs, including but not limited to long-term services and supports, transportation and housing, and employment opportunities.
