The growing impact of coalitions focused on important issues to people with developmental disabilities is expanding the impact of our work. By partnering with like-minded advocacy organizations, our reach onto Capitol Hill and federal agencies is expanding and the media coverage of our issues is increasing. NACDD believes that working together with other organizations both within and beyond the disability community that share the broader vision for every American’s fundamental rights is key to our success.
Our Coalition Partners include:
The Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), formerly the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, is under the Department of Health and Human Services in the federal government. AIDD is dedicated to ensuring that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are able to fully participate in and contribute to all aspects of community life in the United States and its territories.
AIDD has 4 operating divisions: the Office of the Commissioner, the Office of Program Support, the Office of Innovation, and The President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities. Project officers within the Office of Program Support work directly with NACDD’s Technical Assistance team to support the DD Councils.
