UCEDDs

 

Since 1963, University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD) have been working to accomplish a shared vision that foresees a nation in which all Americans, including Americans with disabilities, participate fully in their communities. Independence, productivity, and community inclusion are key components of this vision. Currently, sixty-seven UCEDDs in every state and territory are located in a university setting.

Now Archived UCEDD Grants Management Series: Needs Assessment for UCEDD Core Grant

The UCEDD core grant application must be based on data-driven strategic planning, per 45 CFR 1388.5(c)(2). State- or Territory-wide needs assessments typically inform this strategic planning process and are discussed in the "Problem Statement" section of the UCEDD core grant application. This webinar will present results of a network-wide survey of how needs assessments are implemented, the Florida Center for Inclusive Communities' experience in conducting their needs assessment, and will provide significant opportunity for discussion. See relevant materials on the event page.
