It coordinates activities that span the areas of assistive technology and universal design; medical rehabilitation; data and statistics; employment; and community participation.

The ICDR annual report addresses the mission of the ICDR, as established in legislation. During the reporting period identified, the ICDR works to further interagency committee participation through expansion of its operational structure to include subcommittees on disability statistics, medical rehabilitation, technology, employment and the New Freedom Initiative.
