A new grant application is available from the The New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. One grant winner will receive up to $300,000 ($100,000 per year for three years) to establish a Self-Advocacy Leadership Academy in New York State for people over 21 years old with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
From the NYS website: “Research and input from self-advocates and family members of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have all made clear that there is a need and desire for an educational and training program for self-advocates across New York State to build and develop more advanced leadership skills. The aim of this DDPC initiative is to fund the establishment of a Self-Advocacy Leadership Academy to provide the opportunity for self-advocates to participate in a training program that will enhance their leadership capacity and ability to take on leadership positions in advocacy organizations and efforts.”
