MS State Plan

The DD Act of 2000 and the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities require the development of a five year state plan which addresses the needs of individuals with disabilities and their families. Goals and objectives from each state plan are met through Council investments (grants, programs, and/or projects). Outcomes from Council investments are tracked and recorded from pre-determined performance targetsand then reported to AIDD in the Annual Program Performance Report.

The plan linked above contains goals and objectives for all five years and activities for the first two years (FY2017 and 2018).
