Your Opinion Matters!

Now is the time to give us your input on our draft Five-Year State Plan by completing a Public Input Survey. 

In 2019, DD Council took the first step in this process to identify problems or needs by surveying people like you. DD Council reviewed the results and drafted the 2022-2026 Five-Year State Plan on Developmental Disabilities. Now we need your help in reviewing our proposed projects and provided feedback. Public comments will be accepted through February 28, 2021.

What is a Five-Year Plan?

It is the mission of the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council (DD Council) to create change that improves independence, productivity and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities and their families in community life. DD Council receives federal funding for innovative advocacy, capacity building and systems change activities. These activities are designed to contribute to a coordinated system of services, supports and other assistance that is centered around and driven by individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Ohio DD Council's work is driven by its Five-Year State Plan. The plan is developed by input from people with disabilities, family members and interested stakeholders from around the state. All projects described in the plan adhere to DD Council’s philosophy that people with developmental disabilities have the right to be productive, interdependent members of their communities and of society at large. You will also find that the projects that fall under each committee represent activities related to Sections of the DD Act that governs what we do.
