Our Five Year Plan​

NDCPD is a federally funded University Center of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) which is part of a national network. The US Department of Health & Human Services provides funding for UCEDDs which are based on 5-year cycles. 

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 2021, NDCPD staff began work on identifying the NDCPD goals for their 7th funding cycle, fiscal years 2023-2027. Staff conducted a 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 are listed below: 

Goal 1: Growing up to be an Empowered Adult

Goal 2: Being Empowered to Live in an Adult World

Goal 3: Succeeding in the Workforce

Goal 4: Aging with Dignity

GOAL 1: Growing up to be an Empowered Adult

Specifically, ND citizens with I/DD will have access to qualified professionals and services in their early years to ensure that they grow up to be empowered adults.

GOAL2: Being empowered to live an adult world

ND citizens with I/DD will use skills learned in their education programs to be fully self-determined and competent to live successfully in an adult world.

GOAL 3: Succeeding in the work force

ND citizens with I/DD will have access to professionals who have information, skills, and experiences to support employees with I/DD to be successful in integrated community work settings through customized employment (CE).

GOAL 4: Aging with Dignity

ND citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities will have appropriate health care, qualified staff and living options so they can appropriately age with dignity.
