Commonwealth Council on Developmental Disabilities
~~“We are an independent self-governing organization dedicated to advancing the inclusion of Kentuckians in all facets of community life. The Council is part 56 national State and Territory Councils on Developmental Disabilities, all federally funded and mandated to advocate and create systems change for people with developmental disabilities.
We have a Council of 26 governor appointed citizens and seven Council staff. The Council develops a Five Year State Plan to meet goals in advocacy, capacity building and creating change. Working from the Five Year State Plan, the Council provides grants and contracts for innovative and sustainable projects that empower Kentuckians with Developmental Disabilities and their families. We assist in training initiatives and public policy strategies to educate lawmakers and policy makers.”
