UCEDD Discussion Forum: Funding Series

One commonality UCEDDs share is funding; centers all have their core funding and are required to leverage funds. The question is, how do they allocate those funds and maximize relationships with funders to effectively support their center's infrastructure, activities, and development? With the assistance of a workgroup of UCEDD directors and business managers, a series of six discussion forums on funding and funding relationships was designed to provide an opportunity for UCEDD Directors and business managers to engage in open dialogue to inform and support their efforts at their respective UCEDDs. In lieu of formal presentations, information was solicited pertaining to the topic as part of the registration process and shared with guests prior to the discussion forum to inform the discussion. Please contact Tanisha Clarke if you have any questions.
