Title: Development Disabilities State Plan.
OMB No.: 0980-0162.
Description: A Developmental Disabilities Council State Plan is required by federal statute. Each State Developmental Disabilities Council must develop the plan, provide for public comments in the State, provide for approval by the State's Governor, and finally submit the plan once every five years. On an annual basis, the Council must review the plan and make any amendments. The State Plan will be used (1) by the Council as a planning document; (2) by the citizenry of the State as a mechanism for commenting on the plans of the Council; and (3) by the Department as a stewardship tool, for ensuring compliance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act and as one basis for providing technical assistance (e.g., during site visits).
Respondents: State Government.
