The Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities (GCPD) is an independent state agency that facilitates change.

Our mission is to support the independence and inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) in all aspects of society. This mission is accomplished through planning, evaluation, collaboration, education, research, and advocacy.

The Council is consumer-driven and is charged with determining how the service delivery system in both the public and private sectors can be most responsive to people with disabilities. The Council receives and disseminates federal funds to support innovative programs that are visionary, influence public policy, empower individuals and families, and advocate for systemic change.

Members of the Council are appointed by the Governor and 60% of the board must be people with ID/DD or their family members.
