|About State Teams|
Alliance for Full Participation State Teams are forming across the United States in support of AFP's goal to double employment for people with developmental disabilities by the year 2015. Several of the state teams are using Employment First initiatives to promote AFP, others are incorporating the AFP mission and employment challenge as part of a Medicaid Grant project, still others are working within their APSE chapters or State DD Councils, or with other coalitions that have worked to promote employment within their states.
AFP provides state teams with resources to help:
State Teams are composed of representatives within the developmental disabilities community and include the voices of individuals with developmental disabilities, employers, families, policy makers, providers, researchers and community builders. State Teams are a vehicle to build state-wide coalitions representing all key stakeholders that will provide input, feedback and direction to the national summit organization process. Our expectation is that state teams will bring the Summit’s action agenda back to their communities so that the vision and outcomes agreed upon in Washington can become a reality nationwide.
