The President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities (PCPID) held a virtual meeting on May 1, 2023, to discuss issues related to home and community-based services (HCBS). The discussion helped develop a general framework for the preparation of the Committee’s Report to the President. Key emerging issues identified related to HCBS include direct support professionals, competitive integrated employment, community living, and federal support programs.
All meeting materials — agenda, minutes, presentation slides, and video replay with captions — can now be accessed on the PCPID webpage in the PCPID Meeting Materials section.
Initially established in 1966 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, the PCPID advises the President and the Secretary of Health and Human Services on a broad range of topics that impact people with intellectual disabilities, as well as the professional fields that support people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Its goal is to improve the quality of life experienced by people with intellectual disabilities by upholding their full citizenship rights, independence, self-determination, and lifelong participation in their communities.
