The National Disability Institute and its partner organizations are collecting information to be used in developing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including in advocacy efforts to press Congress, federal agencies and state governments to protect the interests of persons with disabilities as responses to the coronavirus emergency are developed and implemented. NDI has a brief online survey to collect information on how the emergency is affecting the disability community. We encourage you to go to https://ndiinc.formstack.com/forms/financial_resiliency_during_corona_virus and respond to the survey to help in these advocacy efforts.
Wondering what to do with your time at home? We need you to speak your mind and provide much-needed information so we can develop a comprehensive, accurate, and effective Five-Year Plan to help New Mexicans with disabilities. Go to https://s.surveyplanet.com/NYFvsjjj and complete the survey.
