ACL has awarded a new Project of National Significance on “Bridging the Aging and Disabilities Networks” to the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) in the estimated amount of $398,384.00 every year for the period of September 1, 2021, to August 31, 2026.
The grantee will develop a Community of Practice designed to build capacity across and within states’ aging and disability networks that will focus on creating culturally competent systems to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and their families to improve planning to address their individual needs, goals, and preferences across the lifespan.
NACDD is partnering on the project with the Institute on Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois Chicago, Lurie Institute for Disability Policy at Brandeis University, The Arc, and US Aging.
