DD Council

The Iowa DD Council has openings they would like to fill with Iowans who have a developmental disability. The DD Council promotes the development of a coordinated system of services and supports that provide opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to be independent, productive, and included in their communities.

They do this with activities that:

  • Influence changes to laws, policies and attitudes that affect supports and services used by Iowans with developmental disabilities
  • Build the ability of Iowans with disabilities to make choices and have control over their lives; and/or build the capacity of communities to create welcoming accommodations for people with developmental disabilities
  • Assist Iowans with developmental disabilities to be advocates and leaders involved in the decision-making processes that affect them.

If you are over age 18, have a developmental disability and are interested in disability related issues, we encourage you to apply. Go to: http://iddcouncil.idaction.org/about/application/
