It is a society’s view of a person’s abilities. ~ unknown Image of an individual with disabilities smiling while stretching his arms out Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. ~ Helen Keller

Our Five Year Plan​

NDCPD Core Goals for 2017-2022 (employment, education, aging and health)
NDCPD is a federally funded University of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) and funding comes from the US Department of Health & Human Services. The timeline for funding is based on a 5-year cycle. At the beginning of each cycle, NDCPD leadership and staff identify goals and activities intended to improve the lives of people with disabilities in ND. In 2016, NDCPD staff began work on identifying goals for their 6th cycle of funding, fiscal year 2018-2022. Staff conducted a comprehensive needs assessment with individuals, constituents and agencies across North Dakota regarding the needs of individuals with disabilities. Four goals were identified from that needs assessment which focus on the topics listed below.
