About the Olmstead Implementation Office

The Minnesota Olmstead Implementation Office (OIO) works at the intersection of Minnesota’s state agencies and disability community. The Olmstead Plan aims to ensure that disabled Minnesotans are living full, integrated lives in their chosen communities. OIO was created in 2013 by the Subcabinet. Its work includes:

  • Facilitating the co-creation of the Olmstead Plan with people with disabilities and state agency leaders
  • Creating opportunities for public input about the Plan
  • Providing education and data about the Plan and the integration of people with disabilities in Minnesota
  • Working to ensure that people with disabilities understand the Plan and whether its goals are being met

Over the next year, OIO will host a variety of engagement opportunities such as a written survey and small and large community conversations. OIO plans to engage consultants with lived experience of disability to co-create the Olmstead Plan with state agencies. Sign up for the email newsletter to stay up to date with OIO.
