Mission

The mission of the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC) is to promote policies, plans and best practices that affirm the dignity, value, respect, contribution and worth of all New Yorkers with developmental disabilities. For over forty years, this federally-funded State agency has been developing and funding innovative, disability-related projects which improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities.

Organization and Staffing

The FY 2019 Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 18 FTEs for DDPC, reflecting no change from FY 2018. In addition, the Council is made up of approximately 35 Gubernatorial-appointees, of which more than 60 percent are individuals or family members of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, as required by the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000. The remaining Council members include State agency representatives and service providers. This diverse membership provides multiple perspectives and allows input from different skill sets and life experiences.

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget recommends $4.8 million All Funds appropriations for DDPC. This represents the same level as FY 2018 and is based on the level of anticipated federal grants funding. This funding is sufficient to support the Council's role in coordinating information about persons with developmental disabilities and the services available to them, and in overseeing grant funds.

Federal funds fully support all DDPC operations and contracts with non-profit agencies to develop new services and service delivery methods. The contracts are monitored by DDPC to ensure that federal funds provided to the State are used to augment – rather than duplicate or replace – existing services for people with developmental disabilities.

Program Highlights

The Council meets three times a year to discuss and vote on projects and initiatives to be funded by the federal Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) grants received by DDPC. The Council develops a five-year State Plan that aligns with the objectives of the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, which is then submitted for approval to the AIDD. Recent notable projects have included training for first responders on disability awareness and the creation of a transit accessibility program that will examine ways to reduce transportation barriers for individuals with developmental disabilities.
