Agenda Item #41
2014-2015 Adults with Disabilities Grant Application
This Agenda Item is to inform the Board and request approval to submit an annual application to the State for funding through the Adults with Disabilities grant process as required by the Florida State Legislature.
The primary purpose of the Adults with Disabilities program 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 2014-2015.
Grant permission to Brevard County's Adults with Disabilities program to apply for funding through a Florida State Legislature grant process. Once the application has been submitted and approved by the State, a request for Consent will be on the August 26, 2014 Board agenda.
