State Plan

Federal law requires the State Council to identify ways to improve and increase services for individuals and their families, and to submit these ideas to the federal government in the form of a State Plan. Effective with the passage of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, the Plan covers a five-year period.


2022-2026 State Plan Development
The State Council on Developmental Disabilities appreciates that so many of you responded to its State Plan survey. A total of 6,329 responses were received online and through community training and events (surveys were provided in 17 different threshold languages, in addition to English). Based on survey responses and research provided by Council staff, the Council’s State Plan Committee developed its proposed State Plan. The Council is now asking for public review of and comments on its proposed 2022-26 California State Plan. The 2022-2026 State Plan has been translated into the same 17 threshold languages (see below). This public comment period will be open for 45 days, and will close on November 9, 2020.
