5-Year State Plan

Jump to: Read the State PlanDrafting the State Plan | Downloadable Documents

Every five years, the Vermont Developmental Disabilities Council writes a new State Plan. The Plan reflects the current needs of their family, friends, and neighbors impacted by a developmental disability in our state. The State Plan guides how the Council uses its resources -- including VTDDC’s annual allocation of federal funds -- to improve the lives of Vermonters with developmental disabilities.

The State Plan helps VTDDC to realize important goals and objectives, and measure how it has impacted Vermonters statewide.  Its four goals focus on assisting underserved communities, supporting self-advocacy, filling service gaps, and advancing high quality supports for  Vermonters with developmental disabilities.

VTDDS’s Five-Year State Plan is based on a comprehensive assessment of the needs of Vermonters with I/DD and their family members.  VTDDC updates this assessment annually.

No time to read the work plan? Would you rather just listen? VTDDC has carefully created several videos to explain the goals and objectives for 2022 and 2023.
