Congratulations to the Newest Class of NSIP Awardees

The Institute for Community Inclusion's (MA UCEDD) National Service Inclusion Project recently awarded four $40,000 grants.

The primary objective of these 18-month grants will be identifying the number of individuals with disabilities willing to apply and enroll in national service and describing the support strategies utilized to ensure a positive experience and retention.

To achieve this, the UCEDD must recruit, establish a contractual agreement, and fund the active participation of a consumer-directed disability organization or group that will work in partnership with their respective State Commissions and/or State Office.

The list of UCEDD award recipients includes:

Descriptions of the individual projects will be provided shortly.
