Our Vision: A Life in the Community for Everyone

About the Taskforce

The Olmstead Consumer Taskforce is a statewide advocacy group charged by Executive Order to monitor Iowa’s response to the 1999 Supreme Court’s Olmstead Decision.

The Olmstead Consumer Taskforce is accepting applications for new members at this time. The application deadline has been extended to July 23 at 4:00 p.m. Learn more on our “Apply To Be a Member” page.

Our activities support the full inclusion of people with disabilities in housing, employment, transportation, healthcare, and other areas. We work with consumers and families, state agencies, providers, and others to ensure that legislation, changes in administrative rule, and other public policies and programs promote the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of life in the community.

The Taskforce meets six times a year from 10am-3pm at the Pleasant Hill Public Library. All meetings are open to the public and all are welcome. Visit the “meetings” tab for more information and sign up for our mailing list to receive occasional updates from the Taskforce, including meeting announcements and materials.
