Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Cabinet today passed a resolution recognizing March 2019 as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.
“We are proud to recognize March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month to highlight the many citizens committed to improving the quality of life for our fellow Floridians with developmental disabilities,” said Governor DeSantis. “These valued members of our community contribute to the success of our state every day and I thank the Agency for Persons with Disabilities and our state agencies for their continued efforts.”
Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month is a time to recognize Florida’s public policy improvements, the accomplishments of community organizations, state agencies and most importantly, the achievements of thousands of individuals with developmental disabilities who contribute daily to communities across the state of Florida. In Governor DeSantis’ 2019-2020 A Bold Vision for a Brighter Future budget, he recommended continuing investments to help more Floridians with disabilities receive services and assistance.
