What is Olmstead?

The Olmstead Case created a ruling by the United States Supreme Court on June 22nd, 1999, that requires states to eliminate unnecessary segregation of persons with disabilities and to ensure that persons with disabilities receive services in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. This decision was in response to a suit brought on by two women, Lois Curtis and Elaine Wilson, who were in a mental health institution even after medical personnel acknowledged that both women were ready and able to live in the community.  

The District of Columbia continues to be committed to the Olmstead Community Integration Plan outlined in D.C. Act 16-595 The Disability Rights Protection Act of 2006. The District values its residents with disabilities as contributing members of society and understands the cost-effective benefits of supporting them with integrated, community-based services.
