ACL’s Administration on Disabilities (AoD) is announcing a new funding opportunity to create the National Resource and Technical Assistance Center: Increasing Capacity to Serve Individuals with Co-Occurring Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Mental Health Disabilities.

Under the Projects of National Significance (PNS) program one competitive, five-year cooperative agreement will be awarded to establish a national, person-centered, culturally competent training center for building capacity in state and local service systems to support individuals with co-occurring intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and mental health disabilities living well. The Center will be guided by people with lived experience, including those from underserved communities, and will provide training, peer-to-peer learning, and resources to individuals, family members, and professionals working with people with ID/DD and mental health disabilities, including mental health professionals and direct support professionals. The Center will also support state agencies by providing resources related to policy development, service design, and service coordination across agencies.

ACL's Projects of National Significance focus on the most pressing issues affecting people with developmental disabilities and their families. Through the projects, ACL supports the development of national and state policy and awards grants and contracts that enhance the independence, productivity, inclusion, and integration of people with developmental disabilities.
