The 5.07 Planning Process
Section 5.07 of New York State Mental Hygiene Law requires OPWDD to make a five-year plan for providing services. This plan sets goals for improving supports and services.
OPWDD’s 5.07 Plan names the following goals-
1. Support people in the most person-centered ways
2. Strengthen the workforce and OPWDD
3. Improve the service system across the state
The specifics of these goals and how OPWDD will be reporting on the plan and progress are included in this 5.07 Strategic Plan Plain Language here. Full information from OPWDD on the 5.07 plan can be found here.
OPWDD is seeking people to provide feedback on the 5.07 plan. Two statewide hearings are scheduled and a link is provided to offer feedback. Everyone’s participation and feedback is important!
