Developmental Disabilities Supports Division

The Developmental Disabilities Supports Division (DDSD) in New Mexico provides information and referral services to people with disabilities and their families who are seeking help locating the right resources in their communities. The DDSD is also responsible for overseeing various Medicaid home-and community-based waiver programs that are designed to help people with disabilities live as independently as possible.

The Mission of DDSD is to effectively administer a system of person-centered community supports and services that promotes positive outcomes for all stakeholders with a primary focus on assisting individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to exercise their right to make choices, grow and contribute to their community.
