Racial/ethnic Minority Groups
The Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council is pleased to announce a new small grants program designed to assist Pennsylvania's racial/ethnic minority groups in improving community service systems for their members with developmental disabilities.
The Community Outreach Grant Program is an opportunity for Pennsylvania minority groups and organizations to apply for money to support their advocacy work in making community services more responsive to the needs of Pennsylvania's racial and ethnic minorities with developmental disabilities.
Grants will be awarded up to a maximum of $10,000 for a term of up to 18 months. The funds are intended to sustain groups in their efforts to identify racial/ethnic barriers, and implement strategies to resolve issues related to the community systems that serve people with disabilities.
For this program, the definition of "racial/ethnic minority" is African American, Latino, Asian American, and Native American.
Requests for an application package for this program should be directed to: Ms. Maria Contino, Project Officer - 717-772-4129.
