Goals &

Work Plan

Promoting inclusion, integration and independence for Arkansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in all parts of community life is our mission!

The Council works to identify the most pressing needs of the IDD community in our state and address those needs by conducting outreach, fostering change and supporting capacity-building efforts. We conduct activities and support programs and projects that fit our 5 year state plan. The Arkansas GCDD has three goals stated in our plan:

Goal One:  People with developmental disabilities and their families will be active in advocacy activities that improve their lives, and the lives of others and the service system.

Goal Two:  People with developmental disabilities and their families will have increased access to community support and services.

Goal Three:  The Council will work to improve competitive, integrated employment of Arkansans with developmental disabilities.
