Welcome to the Commission of Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing

The purpose of this website is to provide a single entry point to Minnesota laws, statutes, rules and regulations that affect the lives of deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing people. The site also provides advocacy resources. We have tried to make it as comprehensive as possible and easy to navigate. It is a work in progress.

Want information on federal laws? The Commission has a limited section under "Federal Laws" and will continue to update it. We will also provide links to existing websites that we think have done a good job interpreting the laws and helping individuals to self-advocate.

The Commission of Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans is a state agency that advocates for equal opportunity in health care, education, employment, technology and access to public services for the 10% of Minnesotans who are deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing. We do this by promoting civic engagement and self-advocacy. Please visit our website to learn more about the work we are doing. To get involved sign up for our email alerts, Twitter, or visit us on Facebook.

Please fill out our online feedback form and let us know if you find the site helpful and how we can improve it.

Thank you.

The Commission of Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans
