50 People for 50 Years Campaign

Monday, March 16, 2020

In 2020, the Iowa DD Council is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (DD Act). The purpose of the DD Act is to assure that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of, and have access to, needed community services, individualized supports and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity, integration and inclusion in all facets of community life through culturally competent programs authorized under the law.


During this year-long celebration, the Iowa DD Council will share stories of those positively impacted by the DD Act and the work of the Iowa DD Council. Has your life been positively impacted by the DD Act or the work of the Iowa DD Council? Do you have a story that you’d like to share? Tell us all about it at #50People50Years
