The Maine Developmental Disabilities Council is in the midst of the planning process for our next five-year State Plan. Late last year MDDC collected public input on the most pressing needs of people in Maine with developmental disabilities and the areas we should focus on to best impact systems of care and help people with developmental disabilities live full and self-determined lives in their communities.
Based on that feedback, MDDC has written the following proposed Goals and Objectives for our 2022-26 State Plan. We are seeking public input on this proposal – to provide a comment, click on the link below. The public comment period ends on April 25, 2021.
|People with developmental disabilities, families, and communities will have increased opportunities for choice, self-determination, and community membership.|
MDDC will promote the civil rights of individuals with developmental disabilities.
Support Maine’s self-advocacy organization and promote development of diverse leaders among people with developmental disabilities and families.
|Improve systems of support for people with developmental disabilities and families.|
Decrease health and educational disparities experienced by people with developmental disabilities.
Improve access, quality, and integration of services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities and families.
Support efforts to expand access to information and services for underserved individuals with developmental disabilities and families.
