Every five years, the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) submits a plan to the federal government for systems change focused on improving the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities through full inclusion and participation in all aspects of community life.
This plan will be in effect for the 2022-2026 federal fiscal years. The 5-year federal fiscal calendar begins October 1, 2021, and ends September 30, 2026. The plan will be submitted to the federal oversight agency, the Office of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, by August 15, 2021.
To reach the goals outlined in the state plan, the Council uses a number of strategies, including training and consulting, building coalitions, educating policy makers and the general public, organizing grassroots advocacy, and funding demonstration projects.
This draft includes the goals and objectives BPDD chose for the 2022-2026 State Plan. The draft also includes examples of activities that could be used to reach the identified goals and objectives.
The draft is now open for public comment. If you have comments or suggestions, please provide comment by clicking the buttons below to complete the survey. There are two public hearings scheduled for you to attend virtually and give comment.

At its May Board meeting, the Board will review all public comments and decide how to address them. If the BPDD Board determines that significant changes to the plan are needed based on the public comments, the board will send out a revised plan for an additional 45 days to gather additional feedback. Once approved, the State Plan will be completed and submitted to the federal government.
