Funding Opportunity: Projects of National Significance: Partnerships in Employment Systems Change

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On June 16, 2011 (EST)

The Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announces the availability of 2.2 million of Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 funds for projects developed by consortia that demonstrate a collaborative approach to creating employment systems change at the state level on behalf of youth and young adults with developmental disabilities (DD) including youth and young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). As defined by the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental disabilities, the term intellectual disability is characterized by significant limitations in intellectual functioning (reasoning, learning, problem solving) and in adaptive behavior, which covers a range of everyday social and practical skills and originates before the age of 18. Funding through this announcement will be used to design and implement statewide model demonstration projects through Partnerships in Employment Systems Change grants that stimulate and advance systems change in order to expand competitive employment in integrated settings for youth and young adults with DD including ID.
