Commissions on Disability

Get support for your municipal Commission on Disability.

One of the main duties of the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) is to support and guide municipal Commissions on Disability (CODs). These commissions promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of community life. They are established by town meeting or city council vote.

MOD can visit your local commission to discuss topics of your choice, for example, changes to the law, and your role in the community.

If you are a COD member and would like someone from MOD to come to one of your meetings, please contact Jeffrey L. Dougan, Assistant Director for Community Services at the Massachusetts Office on Disability at (617) 727-7440 ext. 27316 or email Jeff at
