Interesting to me that they don't count the every-3-years statewide community needs assessment when they say it's the first effort in 30 years. Lydia

Subject: [nFBMI-Talk] Michigan launches major survey of the deaf, blind
LANSING, Mich. (AP) The state of Michigan wants to learn about the needs of deaf, blind and hearing-impaired residents.
The Department of Civil Rights launched an online survey Thursday to learn more about that population and how people get access to government, health care and other parts of civic life. The state says it's the first effort in roughly 30 years.
Annie Urasky, director of the Division on Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing, says the survey will help create a comprehensive picture of the needs of the community.
The survey will be available for eight weeks at www.NotWithoutUsMich.org/survey<http://www.NotWithoutUsMich.org/survey> . The state says many partner agencies throughout Michigan will be providing computer access. The results will be delivered by early 2019.
The state is being assisted by Madonna University's sign language department.
