The NGCDD accomplishes its federal mandates through several different avenues.  Some activities are carried out “in house” by NGCDD staff while others are accomplished by partnering with other established agencies and organizations to address areas of mutual concern.  Additionally, the NGCDD identifies gaps in service delivery and provides community grants to develop and implement projects that address innovative ways to fill those gaps and develop infrastructure for the State. These gaps in service are identified through the development of a Five Year State Plan.  Each state is required to review current needs of individuals in their state and the services and supports available to meet those needs in order to determine how their grant funding will be expended.   

It is the policy of the NGCDD to enforce Executive Order # 12549 which requires that no contractors or sub-recipients of Federal funding are to be found on the Lists of Parties Excluded from Federal Procurement or Non-procurement Programs.  The list of debarred parties can be found at
