Arizona's Olmstead Plan

In July 1999, the Supreme Court issued the Olmstead v. L.C. decision that clearly challenges Federal, State, and Local governments to develop more opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The Olmstead ruling provides an important clarification about how states should comply with Title II of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990).

Arizona's Olmstead Plan represents a collaborative effort by consumers, providers, and advocacy groups to improve opportunities for elderly and disabled persons to access community-based services.
