By the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council

The Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council has announced a grant opportunity to research Arizona’s response to sexual violence against children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The application period is through April 10, 2019.

Arizona lacks a clear understanding on how the state’s legislation, regulations, and the field of services and supports have prevented and responded to sexual violence towards people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. There is a need to understand the gaps that undermine the health and safety of the I/DD population. 

The winning grantee will evaluate the current state system in response to this issue with recommendations on how to advance towards a more coordinated system where sexual violence among people with I/DD is prioritized.

The grant is available to nonprofits, colleges or universities, and for-profits.  The total amount of funding available is $100,000 over a 12-month period.  This is a one-year grant and a single award will be made. The grant application is due April 10, 2019.

A pre-application conference is scheduled for March 5, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. Arizona Time at our Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council office, located at 3839 North Third Street, Suite 306, Phoenix, Arizona 85012. If unable to attend in person, teleconferencing is available by dialing 1-240-454-0879, Access Code 806-463-229 #.
