In March, NCD decided its policy priorities for the next fiscal year. In advance of the meeting, we asked for your thoughts regarding the slate of proposed projects under consideration, and we heard from a great number of you in advance of the meeting and at the meeting itself. Thank you! Your insights were instrumental in the way the Council voted on its projects, and helped to steer the direction of NCD’s reports in the next fiscal year. 

Now we’re ready to hear from you again about those topics. 

        • Involuntary institutionalization of people with disabilities as a result of disasters;
        • Guardianship follow-on report regarding specific issues for I/DD populations;
        • Guardianship follow-on report examining why guardianship has almost never been addressed by federal courts despite serious due process implications; 
        • Subminimum wage follow-on work regarding use of 14(c) within for-profit supply chains;
        • Bioethics and disability (report series); and 
        • Centralized accommodation funds for the Federal Government
