National Council on Disability Meets

 

The National Council on Disability has announced the date and time of their next quarterly meeting. The Council will meet on Thursday, October 7 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm.

The Council meeting will take place via zoom so any disability advocate can join the meeting using zoom or the telephone number and passcode associated with zoom. Registration is not required but encouraged. ASL and CART have been arranged for the meeting.

The Council is an independent federal agency that advises federal agencies, Congress, and the President on issues impacting people with disabilities. The Council is currently seeking proposals on a new Notice of Funding Opportunity for a 2022 Progress Report on Environmental Injustice and the Impact of the Increased Frequency of Extreme Weather Events on People with Disabilities. You can find a link to the Notice of Funding Opportunity on our website at www.disabilityrightspa.org.

The agenda for the Council meeting has been released. You can view the full agenda by visiting www.disabilityrightspa.org and clicking on today’s #AdvocacyMatters segment. The agenda includes updates on public policy, voting rights, progress reports on COVID-19 and climate change, state advocacy highlights, and more.

There is always an opportunity for public comment. The National Council on Disability welcomes public comments from individuals, businesses, providers, educators, parents, and advocates. The Council receives public comments via email or over zoom during the meeting.
