The Milford Commission on Disability serves as an advisory board to the Town of Milford on issues of equal access for individuals with disabilities. Members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen and serve three year terms.
The Commission is also a resource for individuals with disabilities regarding employment, programs and services provided by state and local governments, goods and services provided by private companies, and access to commercial facilities.
Several members of the Commission on Disability are certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as Community Access Monitors, and can offer advice to new businesses and businesses undergoing renovation on ways to make their facilities accessible to individuals with disabilities and comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (Federal) and the Architectural Access Board (State).
The Milford Commission on Disability, as the centralizing agency for the Town of Milford, maintains a current list of community service programs for the Greater Milford Area.
