MDA and National Association of the Deaf have an agreement called Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). With this agreement, NAD will provide up to $3,000 to MDA annually for the purpose of providing advocacy training to the people of Michigan in the area of civil rights, human and linguistic rights including educational, employment legal rights of deaf and hard of hearing people. The funding support consists of interest income from the NAD Motor City Association of the Deaf Fund.
