DD Council Technical Assistance
Cultural Competence Plan
ITACC (Information and Technical Assistance for Councils on Developmental Disabilities) is a federally funded technical assistance project. Section 129(b) of PL 106–402 provides that funding be made available to provide technical assistance to entities funded under the DD Act (PL 106–402). ITACC is the entity providing technical assistance to Councils on Developmental Disabilities. The National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities received the award to provide these services.
NACDD/ITACC shall provide all training and technical assistance in a culturally competent manner approved by the Administration on Developmental Disabilities. To accomplish this, NACDD/ITACC developed a cultural competence plan.
The goal of the plan is:
To perform all activities and duties of the technical assistance contract to Councils in a manner that has the greatest likelihood of ensuring maximum participation by individuals with developmental disabilities and their family members, while respecting and valuing culture.
