NCCDD is hosting a listening session for its next Five Year State Plan, and wants to hear from young people with intellectual and/or other developmental disabilities. If you are 30 years old or under, have your voice heard by registering today! This is your opportunity to request for change for the disability community in North Carolina.
What is the Five-Year State Plan? Every five years, the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities develops a State Plan that reflects a comprehensive review of major service systems and issues in North Carolina.
It outlines goals, objectives and specific activities that will be implemented to bring about change. The State Plan guides the Council regarding how staff and fiscal resources are allocated. The Council's State Plan is developed in accordance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act).
