5 YEAR PLAN 2017-21

New State Plan for Colorado
Proposed Goals and Objectives for 2017 - 2021

The Colorado Developmental Disabilities Council is in the process of developing our new five year State Plan. This plan will be in effect for federal fiscal years October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2021. It will be submitted to our federal oversight agency, the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, on August 15, 2016.

The Council does not provide direct services, instead we identify areas of need across Colorado. Then we work within the mandate from the Developmental Disabilities Act to improve those areas of need by developing leaders, improving policy and practice, and educating stakeholders.

What is our State Plan?
The state plan is our "plan of action" so that we can impact the areas of need that were highlighted by input from Coloradans with disabilities and their family members. The state plan is our strategic planning document, the road map that details what we will do to get from Point A to Point B. We write a new plan every five years; in between we update the state plan to reflect changes in our state.

Your Input Wanted
Public review of the state plan is required by law and helps us improve the plan. The public review period allows for a 45 day window of opportunity for the citizens of Colorado to evaluate the newly developed goals and objectives, and to share their comments with us so we can make improvements. The public review period will be April 27 - June 12, 2016.

We encourage you to send comments, questions and any concerns to us through the link to the survey below, via email to , by phone or by regular mail. We will provide the survey in the format you need to participate-please contact us to make your request at 720.941.0176.
