Commission on Disabilities


The Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) was created in 1981, by M.G.L. c. 6, sec. 185, as the state advocacy agency that serves people with disabilities of all ages. MOD's primary mission is to ensure access. The Commissions on Disability were established by vote of Town Meeting or City or Town Councils to promote the inclusion and integration of persons with disabilities in the activities, services and employment opportunities in the community.

  • Do you have an idea to improve accessibility for the Town of Braintree?
  • Does your community program/idea need assistance in order to benefit people with disabilities, i.e. physical, visually impaired, emotional, behavioral, or communication needs?
