What is the Advisory Council for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing?

Pennsylvania’s Advisory Council for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing (ACDHH) was established as a result of Act 1997-37, which required the establishment of the Office for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the Advisory Council. The Council is mandated to provide recommendations to public and private agencies, advocate for services and act as a bureau of information. 
The Council functions in accordance with its bylaws and the Sunshine Act
It is comprised of 17 members. The members are not paid for their council work; however they are reimbursed for hotel, travel (mileage, parking and tolls) and subsistence, in accordance with the Commonwealth’s reimbursement policy. They travel to Harrisburg for meetings and do subcommittee work between meetings.
ODHH provides staff support to the Council. If you have questions, contact our office.
