Who is eligible for DRC Services
Who is Eligible for DRC Disability Rights Advocacy?
Almost every Kansan with a disability rights issue is eligible for some type of disability rights advocacy (Legal Representation, Advocacy, Self-Advocacy, or Information and Referral). Some laws and policies limit DRC’s services to individuals that meet disability guidelines or specific needs. If we can’t help you, we will try to find someone who can.
DRC provides disability rights advocacy for the civil and legal rights of Kansans with disabilities, including:
- Kansans with Developmental Disabilities.
- Kansans with Mental Illness.
- Kansans with Traumatic Brain Injury.
- Kansans with disabilities who need access to Assistive Technology.
- Kansans who are recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or beneficiaries of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) who experience disability rights barriers to employment.
- Kansans with disabilities who need advocacy in order to exercise their right to vote under the Help America Vote Act.
- Kansans with other permanent disabilities, whose disability was not caused by the aging process.
- Kansans who are applicants or consumers of services funded by the Rehabilitation Act (Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), Independent Living Centers, etc.)
