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.
In December 2013, OMB published final regulations that reform Federal grant-making with the intention of decreasing administrative burden for grantees and reducing waste, fraud and abuse. These new regulations combine the multiple Federal regulations that currently govern the way grants are administered into a single uniform policy guide; this changes the OMB Circulars as you know them. The cross-agency Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR) worked closely with OMB on developing these rules, and will work with stakeholders to facilitate implementation.
After another successful year, the UCEDD Leadership Institute will be back in 2014 to help prepare the next generation of leaders. Please consider recommending your staff for the 2014 class of future UCEDD leaders representing the full diversity of the country.
These meetings provide an opportunity for UCEDD leaders to network, meet with their federal project officers, and learn of new initiatives, national trends, and other information vital to the administration of the UCEDD programs.
