2002-2005 NSIP Accomplishments: Utah

October 15, 2005

Project Director: Gordon Richins

Focus area and target population

Within 2004-2005, the participation from the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University has mainly been an information and referral provider through e-mail and phone inquiries from the developmental disabilities population statewide. As well as agencies that provide services for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Significant Outcomes & Accomplishments

No hard or soft indicators are available from the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University in 2004-2005. Our NSIP mini-grant ended in 2003 but our information and referral and information sharing of material produced under our mini grant is still available for statewide use when requested.

Activities & programs

Our involvement with the NSIP project will continue and information will be shared on an ongoing basis. The Center for Persons with Disabilities is very supportive of the NSIP program and will continue to work with them and focusing on developmental disabilities as well as other disabilities.

As mentioned, the Center for Persons with Disabilities is a very strong advocate for NSIP across the state of Utah. Gordon Richins the consumer liaison at the Center provides information and referral throughout the state on various disability issues across disability. The resources from the centers and the NSIP project in 2002-2003 are still relevant and shared electronically and in hard copy.
