Agenda Item #56


Title
2011-2012 Adults with Disabilities Grant Application

Discussion

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 $356,238 for 2011-2012, a 21% decrease from that of 2010-2011.

Note:  The application is dependent on various informational pieces and reporting from community agencies.  If possible, the grant application will be provided to the Board for review prior to June 14, 2011 for "Information".  If it is not available by that date, it will be made available prior to the July 19, 2011 Board meeting for "Consent".



Recommendation

Approve the grant proposal request of $356,238 to serve adults with disabilities in Brevard County.
