Every year BPDD puts together an Annual Report detailing our grants, projects, conferences and policy work outcomes for the previous year. 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 2018–2019, we have made significant progress in all our goal areas.
You can find a link to our 5-year state plan here: https://wi-bpdd.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/2017-2021-State-Plan-Final.pdf
Starting in 2020 we will be hosting a number of Community Conversations around the state to gather input for our next 5-year state plan. Please read through our current state plan and our annual report so you can help us develop our new state plan to address the needs of the disability community.
