Welcome to Olmstead Real Choices Iowa, where you can learn how the Olmstead Consumer Taskforce is working to promote implementation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1999 Olmstead decision in public policies and programs at the state and local level, and to raise awareness of what this means for Iowans with disabilities and mental illness.
The Supreme Court found that people with disabilities are entitled to receive services in the most integrated setting consistent with their needs. People need more choices regarding where to live, learn, work, and play besides institutions and other congregate settings.
