The Vermont Olmstead Commission

Up one level
The Vermont Olmstead Commission, in consultation with the Secretary of Human Services, has developed a Comprehensive Plan assessing the needs of Vermonters with disabilities to be able to live and work in integrated community settings. A series of public hearings were held across the state to receive comments on Vermont’s draft Comprehensive Plan.
Vermont Olmstead Commission Report Cover
On behalf of the Vermont Olmstead Commission, I am pleased to provide you with the enclosed final Vermont Olmstead Plan and the Abridged Vermont Olmstead Plan. This Plan was commissioned by Act 135 of the 2002 Vermont General Assembly to show our state’s efforts toward complying with the United States Supreme Court ruling in Olmstead V. L.C., 1999.
Vermont Olmstead Commission - Comprehensive Plan
Vermont’s Olmstead Commission is a group of individuals representing consumers, family members, state government, advocacy organizations, and providers, created by the Vermont Legislature in 2002 in response to the United States Supreme Court ruling in Olmstead V. L.C., June 1999. In that case, the Court was asked by two women from Georgia who had spent years in institutions whether the anti-discrimination provision in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) requires a state to discharge people with disabilities to community settings once their treatment providers determine community placement is appropriate
