Council’s Mission

The Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council’s mission is to advance the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all facets of community life by eliminating barriers, creating opportunities, empowering people, and promoting innovation.

What is the Conference Participation Fund?

Due to restrictions on travel because of COVID-19, the Council cannot fund conference participation requests right now.

Each year, the Council sets aside funds to assist a small number of individuals with developmental disabilities and family members of individuals with developmental disabilities in Maryland with the cost of attending out-of-state conferences.
