Developmental Disabilities Services Division (DDSD) is gathering input for proposed changes to the Vermont State System of Care Plan FY2023 - FY2025 for developmental disabilities services. Three areas of focus: housing, paying parents, and autism services, were identified from stakeholders as an area of focus. The State will also hold regional forums to solicit input on any topic related to the draft 2023-2025 plan. Please refer to the links before for more information.
