Agenda Item #46
2012-2013 Adults with Disabilities Grant Application
This proposal requests a continuation of previous funding for services to adults with disabilities. The State Legislature requires this funding be allocated through a grant process. The primary purpose of this project is two-fold: 1) to provide adults with disabilities the opportunity for enhancement of skills that are consistent with their abilities and needs; and 2) to establish a seamless set of services for the recruitment and referral of adults needing these services throughout Brevard County. A secondary purpose is to ensure that the program and services will be appropriately administered to the targeted population of adults with disabilities. The grant will afford $302,802 for 2012-2013, a 15% decrease from that of 2011-2012.
Note: The Grant Application is expected to arrive May 15, 2012. It will be completed and submitted for Consent as an attachment prior to the June 12 Board meeting.
Approve the grant proposal request of $302,802 to serve adults with disabilities in Brevard County.
