Policies and Programs

“The Plan is intended to help people with developmental disabilities, their families, advocates, service providers and policy makers understand how resources for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are managed. It lays out criteria for determining who is eligible for developmental disabilities services and prioritizes the use of resources. It is specifically intended to spell out how legislatively-appropriated funding will be allocated to serve individuals with significant developmental disabilities. The Plan guides the appropriate use of this funding to help people achieve their personal goals and to continuously improve the system of supports for individuals with developmental disabilities within available resources.”

Specifically addresses employment and youth transition goals. This document also provides funding rules, including that funds cannot be used to fund sheltered workshops for those receiving employment services.
