Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) to empower each person to realize his or her place in the community as a citizen of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. To accomplish this mission, DDID will partner with and support persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities, families, advocates, stakeholders and government agencies.


The critical functions of DDID include:

  • Set the standards for best practice.
  • Provide information and technical assistance.
  • Acquire and disperse fiscal resources and administer grants and contracts.
  • Monitor, evaluate and ensure accountability for outcomes for individuals.

It is the responsibility of DDID to provide an array of supports for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. This is accomplished through contracting for services through the 14 Regional Boards and other qualified private providers.

Services that are funded by DDID and provided in varying degrees by each of the Regional Centers and their affiliates include case management, residential services, vocational services, respite services, crisis intervention services, leisure and recreation services, in-home support, and habilitative services.

DDID comprises two branches – the Supports for Community Living Waiver Branch and the Community Support Branch. Click their links in the Related Links box for more information.
