Public Comment Sought on Five-Year State Plan Goals and Objectives for People with Disabilities

The Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities (GCPD) has drafted its 2017-2021 State Plan and is accepting comments from people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, advocates, stakeholders, and the public on its five-year state plan goals and objectives.

The Council is required to create a five-year strategic state plan to address the availability of services, supports, and other assistance for individuals with disabilities and their families in the state. The plan also includes objectives for enhancing people’s lives through training, community education, and support. The state plan provides the basic framework for how Council funds will be used and what activities the Council will be involved in.

Your feedback is critical as the Council finalizes its priority areas and focus objectives in order to implement the 2017-2021 State Plan. The council will accept comments on the proposed goals and objectives through July 25, 2016, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
