2020 marks the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. The Howard County Department of Community Resources and Services and the Howard County Commission on Disabilities invite you to mark this milestone anniversary by entering the ADA30 Art Contest. All contestants are invited to enter up to two (2) works of art (digital submissions only); prizes will be awarded in each category 1st Place Prize $200 • 2nd Place Prize $100.
The commission’s mission is facilitated through the efforts of its members and its subcommittees.
The report by the Howard County Commission on Disabilities examines Howard County’s ability to provide services to the County’s residents with disabilities in the areas of Education, Peer Relationships, Employment, Transportation and Housing. The goals of the nearly year-long study were to identify unmet needs of persons with disabilities and their support networks in those areas and to provide a range of recommendations to address those needs. The entire report may be viewed online by clicking on the link or image, above. A limited number of hard copies are available; to request one, contact Erica Lewis at 410-313-6402 (voice/relay) or email@example.com.
