Check out the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Policy Guide! This Policy Guide was developed to provide an orientation about public policy work with and on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. The website is designed for use by Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Public Policy Fellows and others new to the field of public policy and intellectual and related disabilities. 

The Guide provides information and articles about making federal policy, including the federal budget process. It briefly describes key Congressional committees, Executive branch agencies, federal legislation and judicial decisions that are most significant for people with disabilities. It also lists a number of stakeholder and constituent groups that work with and on behalf of individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families.
