Becoming a Council Member

Council members review the state’s service systems for people with developmental disabilities and advise policy makers on the best ways to change those systems to better serve the population. Members also review and award grants to spark innovative projects throughout New Jersey as well as advocate for people with developmental disabilities and their families on an ongoing basis.

Individuals with developmental disabilities, immediate family members, or guardians of people with developmental disabilities may be eligible to become NJCDD Council members.

To apply, interested individuals may contact the Governor’s Office of Appointments at 609-777-0251 for an application, or click here for more information state.nj.us.
