Disability Rights Iowa


Disability Rights IOWA is part of a national network of protection and advocacy systems established in the 1970s by the U.S. Congress to respond to repeated abuse and neglect of individuals with disabilities in large institutions. We are an independent, non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation funded through contributions, corporate and foundation funding, and grants from the Federal Government. We are not affiliated with any governmental entity or service provider, but we use federal funding to serve people with developmental disabilities, mental illnesses, and other disabilities. Because of our efforts and those of other protection and advocacy systems, people with disabilities are now served in a variety of community settings – schools, group homes, employment sites – as well as institutions. Disability Rights IOWA advocates for the rights of Iowa citizens with disabilities wherever they may live.

Iowa DD Council 


“It’s easy to sit up and take  notice. What is difficult is getting up and taking action.” Those of us affected by disability are certainly not immune to this. We can always be counted on to talk about what’s wrong, what doesn’t work, what needs to change, and what doesn’t make sense, but we all too often come up short when the conversation turns to strategies for action. The DD Council’s strategy to address this is to arm those of us who are affected by disability with the information, skills and confidence to stand up and takeaction; to offer solutions, and be a driving force for the change they want to see. We have designed this website to provide information about the Council’s priorities, strategies, activities and investments toward this effort. It’s a beginning and you can count on us to continue to develop these through the next five years. We call the process “PREPARATION, PARTICIPATION and POWER.”
