The Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council is preparing to issue several grant Request for Proposals (RFPs) in June 2017. The Council has purposefully taken steps to ensure that Pennsylvanians from diverse populations experiencing oppression and marginalization become allies working on our grants, and benefit from them.
The Pa DD Council has initiated a mandatory requirement to ensure the direct involvement and partnership of people with disabilities who are members of diverse unserved/underserved communities. All of our projects must include collaboration with a targeted diverse unserved/underserved population in Pennsylvania.
By either leading or collaborating on our grants, people from diverse communities and the organizations that support them, will be active partners and allies, working to see their community’s disparities lessened or eradicated. Look to our future grants for opportunities to lead or organize partnerships with others, in work that is important to your community. It is the Pa DD Council’s vision that our work not only benefit Pennsylvania’s with developmental disabilities, but indeed, all people.
Don’t miss this future funding opportunity for your diverse Pennsylvania community.
