Welcome!

The Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (MN-CCD) is broad-based coalition of organizations representing persons with disabilities, providers and advocates, dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities.

  • We address public policy issues that affect people with disabilities by collaborating with others, advocating, educating, influencing change and creating awareness for understanding.
  • For some individuals, there must always be a role for government to help support them in their home and community. The MN-CCD supports public policies that provide the most cost-effective delivery of services and help individuals with disabilities maintain their health and gain as much independence in their daily living.
  • Our work includes grassroots advocacy training and shaping public policy to support disability rights.

2015 MN-CCD Public Policy Campaign

In 2015, the MN-CCD will work to increase the Medical Assistance (MA) Income Standard, raise the asset limits and reduce spenddowns, so that people with disabilities and older adults can keep more of their income to live independently in the community. To sign on to the campaign, to learn about telling your story or for information about how to help a person that is affected by the MA Income Standards tell their story, visit the Medical Assistance Campaign web page.

Please explore our website to learn more about the work we do and how to get involved.
