Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (ADDPC)


State Policies & Initiatives: 

~~“A staff of six assists the all-volunteer Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council, which is made up of individuals with disabilities, family members, professional stakeholders and state agency representatives appointed by the Governor of Arizona. The 23-member Council meets at least four times a year to discuss issues and vote on which projects to support by allocating our federal funds.
We were created on July 1, 2009 as a successor organization to the former Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities.

OUR MISSION:  We want to develop and support capacity building and systemic change to increase inclusion and involvement of persons with developmental disabilities in their communities through the promotion of self-determination, independence and dignity in all aspects of life.
OUR VISION:  The vision of the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council is one community working together to achieve full inclusion and participation of persons with developmental disabilities."
