About Us

NCCDD Council 2017
Through advocacy, capacity building and systems change, the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities improves the opportunities and lives of over 180,000 North Carolinians with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families.

The governor-appointed Council represents and partners with agencies, service providers and other organizations across the State that provide people with I/DD, their families and caregivers access to services and resources needed to live in the community of their choice.

The DD Act guides the Council's efforts to promote interdependence and inclusion for people with I/DD, including those with severe disabilities.

Formed in the 1970s through the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (DD Act), NCCDD believes people with I/DD and their families should participate in the design of and have access to needed community services, individualized supports and other forms of assistance.

The Council's collaborative partners, Disability Rights North Carolina and the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities, work closely with the Council and other state partners to broaden the availability of resources for people with I/DD and their families.

North Carolina's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is the designated state agency (DSA) for NCCDD. The DSA's responsibilities include funding support services; accounting for and dispersing funds; monitoring fiscal controls, accounting procedures, timely financial reports and assuring the State Plan complies with State law.
