HHS: Alternatives to Guardianship Youth Resource Center

Funding Type: 
Federal
Due Date: 
Monday, June 29, 2020

The Administration on Disabilities (AoD) seeks to fund one (1) five-year grant to create and maintain an Alternatives to Guardianship Youth Resource Center (the Center) focused on diverting high school students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) away from guardianship to less restrictive supports. As a result of this project, AoD envisions students with ID/DD will have more options upon completion of high school; fewer young adults with ID/DD will be subject to guardianship; parents and school personnel at all levels will be more knowledgeable about alternatives to guardianship; and youth participating in this project will experience improved post-school outcomes such as post-secondary education experience and/or employment.

AoD intends to award one (1) 60-month cooperative agreement. The estimated total program funding is $1.5 million.

Applications are due on Monday, June 29, 2020. View the full announcement at grants.gov for additional information about this opportunity.
