Tennessee Aims To Close Greene Valley Developmental Center By Summer 2017

News Report | March 19, 2017


By the summer of 2017, the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) anticipates that it will be able to close the Greene Valley Developmental Center (GVDC). Before DIDD can close the GVDC, all residents must be transitioned to placements in the community or another appropriate institutional setting. After DIDD closes the GVDC, the state will be released from more than 20 years of court oversight over the care provided by the developmental centers to residents. [Editor's note: On May 26, 2017, the last two GVCD residents transitioned to the community, effectively closing the facility.]
