Colorado Commission on Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH) has a high-level Commission (board) that is comprised of seven Governor-appointed experts in multiple disciplines related to deaf, late-deafened, hard of hearing and deaf-blind. CCDHH is charged with overseeing the provision of equivalent access to governmental services. To meet this mandate, CCDHH advocates for public policies, regulations and programs to provide full and equal opportunity for this population. CCDHH is further mandated to assess the needs of the deaf, hard-of-hearing and deaf-blind community and report to the Governor and the General Assembly any recommendations for legislation or administrative changes that may facilitate or streamline the provision of general government services to the deaf, hard-of-hearing and deaf-blind community annually.
