NCCDD is launching its Five-Year State Plan planning process to gather input from the disability community to formulate its goals for the next five years – 2022-2026 (October 1, 2021-September 30, 2026).
NCCDD is seeking input from SELF-ADVOCATES and YOUTH (30 and under) across North Carolina on what issues matter to them and what they think NCCDD should work on to make North Carolina a more inclusive state for people with I/DD! If you are a self advocate or youth 30 or under, have your voice heard by registering today! This is your opportunity to request for change for the disability community in NC.
The Council's goals for the Five-Year State Plan will be drafted from input received from leaders in the disability community, people with intellectual or other developmental disabilities (I/DD), their families and supporters.
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).
The current Five-Year State Plan (2017-2021) was adopted by the 40-member Council and approved by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD). Implementation began on October 1, 2016.
