The UCEDD Resource Center web site will provide University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service with up to date information that will support the implementation of the AIDD core grant.
This web site is supported through AIDD's contract with AUCD to provide technical assistance to the national network of UCEDDs.
This toolkit is designed to help funders who are interested in funding self-advocates and self-advocacy organizations to have a better understanding of how to work best with people with disabilities, and make sure their needs are met throughout the grant process. This toolkit is the result of needs that were identified by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) while providing technical assistance for a self-advocacy pilot grant project that was funded by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD)
AUCD created this toolkit based on feedback from self-advocates who participated in these Self-Advocacy Organizational Development Grants, who expressed interest in writing grant applications. This toolkit is designed to help more self-advocacy organizations apply for grant in the future.
