FEDERAL OVERSIGHT OF ENTITIES FUNDED UNDER THE DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES ASSISTANCE & BILL OF RIGHTS (“DD ACT”)
“ABUSE OF DD ACT PROGRAMS’ POWERS & RESOURCES”
VOR’s DD Act Reauthorization Position.
VOR urges Congress to amend the DD Act to incorporate the changes recommended by VOR to assure that the DD Act programs are meeting the needs of people with severe and profound mental retardation and developmental disabilities (MR/DD).
VOR is a national grassroots advocacy organization speaking out for persons with MR/DD.
This Executive Summary and the related report (see, http://vor.net/DDActReport.htm) were prepared by the VOR DD Act Task Force, an ad hoc committee authorized by the VOR Board of Directors in June 2007. VOR receives no public funding.
