Governor's Commission on Disability


Independence... It's the New Hampshire Way!

The Commission's goal is to remove the barriers, architectural, attitudinal or programmatic, that bar persons with disabilities from participating in the mainstream of society.

Governor's Commission on Disability has MOVED!

We have now successfully moved to the Philbrook Building located at 121 South Fruit Street, Suite 101, Concord, NH 03301. While we are still working out the kinks, we hope you will leave a message in the Voice Mail system if we are not immediately available and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience during this transition.
