Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement to a USA or territory government agency, nonprofit organization, Tribe, or IHE to create a center to benefit individuals with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. The overall goal for this project is to create greater equities for individuals with disabilities by addressing systemic ableism and racism from an intersectional lens.

The Administration for Community Living (ACL), Administration on Disabilities (AOD), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 funds for a cooperative agreement authorized under Subtitle E of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, Projects of National Significance (PNS) and Section 21 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Funds will be awarded for one (1) five-year grant to create and maintain a national resource center on disability, equity, and intersectionality to build the capacity of communities across the nation to be more inclusive and culturally competent towards individuals with disabilities. The center will increase knowledge and awareness of systemic ableism, racism, and other forms of discrimination experienced by individuals with disabilities, including those with marginalized identities. The center’s primary focus will be addressing systemic ableism, racism, and other forms of discrimination with a concentrated effort around health equity and other topics identified by the grantee. The center will focus on resources to increase equitable access for people with marginalized identities by: supporting forums for cross-cultural and cross-disability exchanges that will advance a culturally competent disability framework; translating research into action and disseminating information using multiple methods; developing tools, such as an organizational self-assessment tool, and supporting communities of practices for transforming systems and organizations; and building the next generation and future leaders of this work through engagement with youth with disabilities. The audience for the center will include, individuals with disabilities, their families, others in their support system, the developmental disabilities network, independent living programs, youth with disabilities, providers, and systems of services and supports.

The overall goal for this project is to create greater equities for individuals with disabilities by addressing systemic ableism and racism from an intersectional lens. Therefore, the resource center will be guided by principles of equity and intersectionality. The resource center will provide the forum for identifying how best to translate the principles of independent living and self-determination into different cultural contexts. Partnerships with entities supporting historically excluded groups/people within the disability community, including but not limited to those who are: Deaf and hard of hearing, blind and low vision, Deaf-blind, LGBTQ+, people of color, immigrants, incarcerated/formerly incarcerated people, indigenous people, and/or community and faith-based groups are critical to the success of this project.
