Administration for Community Living, Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, HHS.
A Plan developed by the State Council on Developmental Disabilities is required by federal statute. Each State Council on Developmental Disabilities must develop the plan, provide for public comments in the State, provide for approval by the State's Governor, and finally submit the plan on a five-year basis. On an annual basis, the Council must review the plan and make any amendments. The State Plan will be used (1) by any amendments. The State Plan will be used (2) by the Council as a planning document; (3) by the citizenry of the State as a mechanism for commenting on the plans of the Council; (4) by the Department as a stewardship tool, for ensuring compliance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, as one basis for providing technical assistance (e.g., during site visits), and as a support for management decision making.
