The New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC) was established to help New Yorkers with intellectual and developmental disabilities by supporting programs necessary to achieve personal independence, community integration, and increased productivity through federal grant funding. Council members are appointed by the Governor and perform an integral role in the DDPC's funding initiatives because they bring experience with services, supports, and their community to the table.
The DDPC is always looking for individuals and family members who would like to bring their life experience and talent to the table and serve on the Council. If you are interested in becoming a DDPC Council Member, please complete this application form and return it according to the instructions.
