Grants of up to $15,000 to Nebraska nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and institutions of higher education to provide services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Funding is intended for innovative smaller projects that support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. NCDD strongly encourages applications from organizations that are located in rural or urban poverty areas, organizations that employ staff with disabilities, and/or organizations that represent linguistic and cultural minorities.

Projects must address one of the following goals and objectives:

    Goal 1: The Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities (DD) will collaborate with Nebraska DD Network Partners, state agencies, community programs, and other stakeholders to provide resources and improve competitive, integrated, and meaningful opportunities for employment, including self-employment with competitive wages, for Nebraskans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

    Goal 2: Increase and strengthen the knowledge of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families to promote and encourage informed decision making about their choices leading to improved quality of life, increased independence, productivity, and full inclusion in their communities.

    Goal 3: By 2026, the capacity of communities and systems to fully include individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) will be increased so that people will have opportunities for greater independence and integration.

    Goal 4: Each year of the plan, the Council will collaborate with self-advocacy organizations, Nebraska Developmental Disabilities (DD) Network Partners, State Agencies, and other stakeholders to implement and expand the tenets of self-determination, increase the ability and opportunity for people to advocate for themselves and others, and increase the number of individuals who meaningfully participate in policymaking and leadership roles.
