Commissions on Disability are established by vote of Town Meeting (in towns) or City Council (in cities) to promote the inclusion and integration of persons with disabilities in the activities, services and employment opportunities in the community. One of MOD's principle duties is to provide support and guidance for these commissions.

Local Disability Commission Meetings

The Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) frequently visits the local Commissions on Disabilities to discuss any topics the Commission wants.  Frequently, MOD provides updates to the Commissions regarding changes to the various state and federal laws and to offer guidance to Commissions regarding their role within the community.
