The Vermont Communication Support Project is administered by Disability Rights Vermont.  Disability Rights Vermont (DRVT), formerly Vermont Protection & Advocacy, is the protection and advocacy system for the state of Vermont.  

DRVT provides information, referral and advocacy services, including legal representation when appropriate, to individuals with disabilities throughout Vermont. DRVT also advocates to promote positive systemic responses to issues affecting people with disabilities. Unlike most other DRVT services the Vermont Communication Support project  does not provide advocacy or legal support.
