 Current Grant Projects

The Council administers federal funds to develop and support innovative practices that promote the independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in their communities. 

The issues and priorities identified by the Council for grant projects are based on the Council’s Five Year State Plan. 

The Council typically funds short and long term (up to three years) grants, training events, and stipends for persons with developmental disabilities and their families to attend conferences and workshops. 

Grants are expected to demonstrate new methods for supporting people with developmental disabilities, have statewide impact, be replicable, and not replace the responsibility of another agency or legal mandate.
