Assemble information on issues affecting people with disabilities in the areas of employment, health services, housing, transportation, and recreation, and other life activities
Recommend ways to eradicate artificial barriers to a full and productive life for people with disabilities
Facilitate coordination between existing and proposed programs for persons with disabilities
