Welcome to the Los Angeles County Commission on Disabilities

Welcome to the Commission on Disabilities webpage. We hope that you will find it to be an indispensable resource in meeting your informational needs. As you experience this website, you will find valuable links intended to support you in acquiring the information and assistance you are seeking. After you have had the opportunity to visit our webpage, we hope that you will access the “contact us” feature listed above and provide us with constructive feedback that will enable us to further enhance our webpage. We invite you to learn more about the commission and how you can take part in serving the disability community of Los Angeles County. Thank you for visiting the Commission on Disabilities webpage.


Members of the Commission on Disabilities are appointed by the Board of Supervisors and represent each district for a nonconsecutive two year term. Our mission is to advise the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on a range of issues affecting the lives of people with disabilities and of actions they can take to achieve a barrier free County where people with disabilities have equal access to programs and services. Our commission and committees focus on issues of health, employment, education, transportation, access, and recreation. We also monitor the quality of municipal services, evaluate policy, and recommend improvements to existing laws. We are especially proud of our Tainter Scholarship Program that disperses financial scholarships to graduating high school seniors with disabilities who are pursuing a higher education. Donations to the Tainter Fund are tax deductible and we encourage your participation.

The Commission on Disabilities meets every third Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are held in room 374-A of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration at 500 West Temple Street in Downtown Los Angeles, California 90012. The public is welcome to attend.
