WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
People with IDD living in rural areas experience additional barriers in access to supports, services, advocacy, and community-based opportunities.

This project will establish regular meetings for self-advocates in rural counties in Region 2 to increase their skills in areas of their choosing. This project will also create direct channels for these groups to share the barriers they face living in rural communities.
