About DD Resources

The St. Louis Office for Developmental Disability Resources (DD Resources) is a publicly funded agency that distributes funds to service providers for community-based services to persons who have a developmental disability and desire to remain in their homes and community.

Senate Bill 40, which was passed by Missouri legislature in 1969 and is also known as the County Sheltered Workshop and Developmental Disability Services Law, allows local taxing districts to ask voters to approve a special real estate tax for the purpose of providing services to persons who have developmental disabilities. St. Louis City voters approved this tax in 1980, establishing the St. Louis Office for Developmental Disability Resources.
