Stakeholder input is very important to the PCPID. Comments and suggestions, especially from people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, are welcome at any time. If there are comments or feedback you would like to share with the PCPID as it begins to prioritize its work, please share them through this form on ACL.gov. Comments received by June 30 will be shared with the PCPID at the July meeting. (Comments received after June 30 will be compiled and shared with the PCPID quarterly.)
