Each year WI BPDD is required to report out on our projects/events and how they have contributed to our five year state plan. The report details our Board’s mission, membership, goals, accomplishments, and budget.
Our federal charge in the Developmental Disabilities Act is identifying the most pressing needs of people with developmental disabilities and developing innovative and cost-effective ways to meet these needs in a manner that upholds human and civil value. Councils (Boards) must include, at minimum, 60% people with developmental disabilities and their family members.
The BPDD State Plan, informed by statewide input from the disability community, focuses primarily on two areas: Full Participation in the Community & Advocacy Efforts. During 2017–2018, we have made significant progress in all of our goal areas.
