Councils on Developmental Disabilities are agencies appointed by governors to represent and advocate for people with developmental disabilities. The Councils have authority to set priorities and develop strategies to improve the lives of the people with disabilities in their states. The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities is a federally funded agency that supports public policies and initiatives that remove barriers and promote opportunities in all areas of life. The Council is independent of the agencies that provide services to people with disabilities. The Council develops a State Plan every five years to establish specific goals, objectives and strategies to address the most important issues affecting people with developmental disabilities in New Hampshire. The Council carries out its mission through education, advocacy and the funding of innovative projects that make a difference in people’s lives.
