About the Council
THE INDIANA GOVERNOR'S COUNCIL FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
"The important thing for Government is not to do things which individuals are doing already and to do them a little better or a little worse; but to do those things which at present are not done at all." J.M. Keynes
The Indiana Governor's Council is an independent state agency that facilitates change. Our mission is to advance the independence, productivity and inclusion of people with disabilities 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 systems change.
Board members of the Council are appointed by the Governor and 60% must be people with disabilities or their family members.
