The New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is developing its five-year, 2023-2027 Strategic Plan in collaboration with its stakeholder partners. The plan, found here in several languages, includes key goals and objectives that will guide the work of the agency toward a system that hopefully can operate more effectively.

The plan’s goals include:

  • Strengthening OPWDD’s workforce, including critically important direct support providers, by improving recruitment, retention and quality;
  • transforming its system through “innovation and change”;
  • enhancing person-centered supports and services.
