Community Building Awards

NJCDD Community Building Awards

When cultivating an inclusive community culture, it is important to provide incentives, support, and recognition to people and organizations that further inclusive values. In this spirit, the New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities established an awards program to encourage individuals to undertake activities that create inclusive communities while showing appreciation to those who demonstrate exceptional commitment and advocacy.

AWARDS LUNCHEON: Postponed to Spring 2021

The awards luncheon will be held at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey. Invitations for awardees and guests will be sent at a later date.
