How do we plan our work?
We develop our work in five-year blocks. Our newest plan covers Federal Fiscal years 2022 – 2026. Our Goals establish our overall direction and what we should achieve in five years. Our Objectives explain the results we will achieve and how they will be achieved.
Each year, the Council meets to determine our annual work plans and allocate funds accordingly. The work plans are high-level summaries of objectives and activities to reach our goals. Our current work plans are available in English and Spanish.
What are we doing now to finalize our 2022-2026 state plan?
- 2021: We submitted our plan to ACL (our federal funders).
- 2022: ACL provided us with feedback that we needed to:
- Revise our two goals
- Revise our Self Advocacy Objective
- Create an “emerging need” Objective
- Create an objective to collaborate with our DD Act Network Partners (Disability Rights Oregon, OHSU UCEDD and U of O UCEDD)
- Currently, we need your feedback on our revised goals, our Self-Advocacy, Emerging Need and Collaboration objectives

Currently, we need your feedback on our two revised goals, and our three objectives (our Self-Advocacy, Emerging Need and Collaboration objectives).
Help the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities identify its priorities for the next five years!
Over the last few years, as we have heard from Oregonians with developmental disabilities, their families and communities, we have reflected on what was shared, and began to develop our plan for what our work needs to look like moving forward. Every 5 years, the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities develops a strategic plan, and submits that plan to the Administration for Community Living, our federal funder. This survey is a part of that process.
We have developed 2 overarching goals for our work in the next 5 years. And each goal has a few key areas of focus, called objectives. What you won’t yet see here is the activities, the steps, we will need to take in order to achieve this work. So as you review this plan, please consider: What have we gotten right in our draft plan? What do you believe should change? What do you believe will need to happen in order for us to succeed? Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We value your perspective on what is most important to the developmental disability community in Oregon.
Tell us what you think! The survey closes on July 8th.
