NY State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council
~~“About the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC)
The federal Developmental Disabilities Act requires that each of the 56 U.S. States and Territories identify a Developmental Disabilities (DD) Council. The New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC) is the DD Council representing New York State. Although the DDPC is 100% federally-funded, it operates as a New York State agency under the direction of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.
The DDPC is not a direct service provider. Our mission is carried out through grant work. The DDPC addresses the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through the development of demonstration projects around advocacy, systems change, and capacity building efforts that promote self-determination, integration, and inclusion in all facets of life.”
