Annually, DD Councils must submit amendments and/or updates to their 5-Year State Plan. An amendment is a major change of a 5-year goal that alters the intent of the original goal (formerly referred to as a “substantive change”. Amendments are due August 15th of each year for the following federal fiscal year. State plan updates are minor grammatical changes to 5-year goals and other components of the plan such as objectives, activities, expected outcomes, evaluation, etc. (formerly referred to as “non-substantive changes), and are due January 1 of each year for the current federal fiscal year.
