Mission

The mission of the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC) is to enhance the lives of New Yorkers with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families by working with key stakeholders to develop, demonstrate, and implement innovative ideas and programs that promote self-determination, independence, productivity, and integration and inclusion in all facets of community life.

Organization and Staffing

The FY 2020 Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 18 FTEs for DDPC, reflecting no change from FY 2019. 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 2019 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 to increase access to information about disability services and supports have included engaging in the creation of a statewide LGBTQIA network for individuals with developmental disabilities, increasing access to developmental disability supports for families with limited English proficiency, and implementing an educational campaign and pilot program on the topic of supported decision-making and alternatives to guardianship.
