Arizona’s Developmental Disabilities Planning Council, the Sonoran UCEDD’s DD Network sister agency got some good news at the end of November  after learning that Governor Brewer extended the Executive Order that created the Council in 2009.  The  Executive Order authorizes the Council to continue its work through 2019 in supporting persons with developmental disabilities and their families by funding important projects related to employment, self-advocacy and educational opportunities.

Funded  through the federal Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the Council funds innovative projects that help persons with developmental disabilities become more included in their communities either by achieving systems change or increasing capacity.

To learn more about the Council, stop by their office located at 1740 West Adams Street, Suite 410, Phoenix, or visit their Website,  Facebook or Twitter sites.
