Gov. Malloy Organizes Group to Improve Services for Individuals
with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he is creating a working group to examine and improve the provision of services to members of the intellectual and developmental disabilities community. The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Service Improvement Working Group will examine gaps in existing IDD services, and identify best practices and opportunities to improve provision of those services. 

"The State of Connecticut has committed significant resources to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, and we strive to make the best and most efficient use of both state and federal funds," said Governor Malloy. "Establishing a working group to examine best practices in the delivery of services will allow us to better partner with individuals and their families to support lifelong planning and to join with others to create and promote meaningful opportunities for our residents to fully participate as valued members of their communities."
