(TRENTON) – Governor Phil Murphy has appointed Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) to the New Jersey State Interagency Coordinating Council (SICC).
Led by the New Jersey Department of Health, the State Interagency Coordinating Council provides a forum for families and the early intervention community to meet and discuss ways in which the State can enhance and improve coordinated services to infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families.
As a member of the State Interagency Coordinating Council, Assemblywoman Vainieri Huttle will work to develop and implement policies regarding early intervention. Additionally, Assemblywoman Vainieri Huttle will work alongside her colleagues on the council to identify and recommend strategies for improvement as well as to provide critical support to families and service providers.
“I am grateful and excited to join the SICC and serve children with disabilities and their families,” said Vainieri Huttle. “I look forward to working with the Council and stakeholders to discuss the most pressing challenges impacting families with young children who have disabilities. As a legislator, my first priority is to advocate for those without a voice. I look forward to continuing this critical work with the New Jersey State Interagency Coordinating Council.”
