Quick Guides: Tools for Independence

The New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council is announcing availability of grant funds to:

Fund one grantee up to $300,000 ($100,000 per year, for 3 years) to develop a Quick Guide series and provide statewide trainings on independence and daily living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD).

Individuals with ID/DD are increasingly living more independently and in community-based settings. One indication of this shift is evidenced within the service delivery system, which has experienced an increase in enrollment in community-respite, residential, day, employment, and self-direction-supports and services in recent years.

To help strengthen the capacity of individuals with ID/DD to live independently in the community, the DDPC will select a single grantee to develop a comprehensive “Quick Guides: Tools for Independence” series and trainings to be delivered statewide.
