Public Input Needed

The Virginia Board for People with Disabilities is hard at work writing its strategic priorities for the next five years and we need to hear from you!

This short survey gives you a chance to identify the areas and disability services in Virginia you think we should focus on. By giving us your feedback, you'll help guide all of our efforts and funding and help make real change in the things that matter to you. 

Please plan to set aside up to 15 minutes to complete this survey by Tuesday, June 30. Your answers will be anonymous, so please feel free to answer honestly. Thank you for your assistance in helping people with disabilities!
