Disability Linkage Line
Disabilty Linkage Line
MCIL offers up-to-date information about community resources related to people with disabilities, including housing and benefits referral, through the Disability Linkage Line. The Disability Linkage Line is an information and referral service for people with disabilities, which was launched in 2004 by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. It provides service to the entire state from four locations, Metro, Rochester, Bemidji and Baxter.
The Disability Linkage Line can be reached statewide by calling toll-free, 1-866-333-2466. An Option Counselor will be available during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m) to provide one-to-one assistance to help people learn about their options and connect with the supports and services they choose.
There is no wrong call to the Disability Linkage Line. Inquiries include requests for information and referrals on disability benefits programs, home modifications, assistive technology, personal assistance services, transition services, accessible housing, employment, social activities and disability rights.
For people who prefer looking for resources over the Internet, the Disability Linkage Line is a partner in the statewide resource database found at Minnesotahelp.info
The Disability Linkage Line providers are The Metropolitan Center for Independent Living and the Southeastern Minnesota Center for Independent Living. Both work in collaboration with Senior LinkAge Line®, a specialty information and assistance service for seniors and the Vetran Linkage Line® to assist military veterans and their families. They also work with other local information and referral agencies to enhance effective and consistent delivery of disability-related information and assistance services.
For additional information please contact the Disability Linkage Line at 1-866-333-2466.
