About the Integrated Community Project
The Integrated Community Project (ICP) works to increase the capacity of people with disabilities to become completely engaged in their communities. To do this, the ICP worked initially in three selected counties, Bergen, Camden, and Ocean, assessing communities’ current successes and opportunities to grow their community integration, involvement and engagement. As of 2024, the ICP has expanded to nine counties - Bergen, Camden, Cumberland, Hudson, Middlesex, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, and Union as well as 24 municipalities.
ICP Toolkit For Municipalities
The second edition of the Integrated Community Project (ICP) Toolkit For Municipalities is now available.
The first edition of the Integrated Community Project (ICP) Toolkit For Municipalities started as a resource designed to help local communities to increase their community involvement for individuals with physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities, mental illness, in substance abuse recovery, who are aging, and/or who have experienced homelessness. The Toolkit is a comprehensive set of resources, best practices, and strategies for municipalities and community leaders to better engage people with disabilities and barriers in every aspect of community life. A Spanish translation of the first edition of the Toolkit For Municipalities is available here.
