President's committee on disability

The President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities (PCPID) typically meets twice a year, and its sessions are always open to the public. The upcoming March 21 meeting will discuss the future of Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), as well as the recommendations identified by four PCPID workgroups as they relate to the HCBS areas of direct support professionals, employment, community living, and Federal support programs.

This discussion will help develop a framework for the preparation of the PCPID Report to the President.

Quick background: PCPID was established in 1966 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It advises the president and the secretary of health and human services on a broad range of topics that impact people with intellectual disabilities, as well as the professional fields that support people with intellectual disabilities and their families.

Comments: Stakeholder input is very important to the PCPID. Comments and suggestions especially from people with intellectual disabilities, are welcomed. If there are comments related to HCBS or other areas that you would like to inform the PCPID, please share them through the following link:​form/​pcpid.
