State and Local InitiativesWhy This Is Important
Service delivery systems for people with developmental disabilities are organized around states and localities. States and localities must be engaged and active partners in promoting person-centered supports. The products in this department will spotlight state and local government initiatives to enable and promote person-centered supports. These initiatives might take the form of broad-scale, multi-year plans, modifying rules and policies to remove barriers to the provision of person-centered supports, or partnerships with and among stakeholders in support of positive system change.
