The Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (P.L. 106-402)  mandates that Councils undertake advocacy, capacity building, and systemic change activities that contribute to a coordinated, individual and family-centered and directed, comprehensive system of community services and supports. The Act requires Councils to establish goals and objectives under a five-year State Plan to address the most important issues impacting the lives of people with developmental disabilities.  The State Plan is amended annually based on community feedback and state and national policy developments that may require a shift in Council priorities.
