The Council identifies Legislative Priorities every year to direct Council efforts in creating systemic change at the highest level in Kentucky. The main objective of CCDD's public policy efforts is to create system change in Kentucky for persons with DD and their families.
The Council provides training opportunities in advocating with legislators and participates in Legislative awareness days, national public policy seminars, and one on one visits with lawmakers to educate on disability issues.
The Council uses a non-partisan approach in activities to promote change. Our emphasis is to be a source of information and advice in helping legislators and other policymakers to identify and evaluate the available alternatives for meeting the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities.

The Council maintains a presence in systems changes initiatives in Kentucky. We assist advocates and families to submit formal comments and recommendations, both as a stand-alone entity and as a member of coalitions, on waiver proposals and other policy issues and/or regulations that directly affect people with developmental disabilities and their families.
