In 1977, the Department of Disabilities originated as the Office for the Coordination of Services to the Handicapped (Chapter 946, Acts of 1977). Within the Office of the Governor, the Office reorganized in 1984 as the Office for Handicapped Individuals (Chapter 295, Acts of 1984). In 1991, it became the Office for Individuals with Disabilities (Chapter 103, Acts of 1991). The Office was abolished when the Department of Disabilities was created on July 1, 2004 (Chapter 425, Acts of 2004; Code Human Services Article, secs. 7-101 through 7-116).
