Erie County's OFFICE FOR THE DISABLED was established and became part of the Charter of the County of Erie (Article 11F, 01-3) in 1983.

The Office was created to ensure that Erie County's citizens with disabilities would have a direct voice in County government; to make available to such citizens an advocate who could work within the county structure to develop and enhance services; and to oversee facilities and programs by the County.

Originally chartered as a separate department under the executive branch of the County government, the Erie County Office for the Disabled (or ECOD) became a part of Erie County's Department of Health in 1993. From 2006-2008, the ECOD operated under the Office of Public Advocacy. As of 2008, the ECOD has been operating under the Erie County Department of Personnel.
