Agenda Item #54


Title
Adults with Disabilities Grant 2009-2010

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.



Recommendation
Approve the proposal request of $472,441 for services for adults with disabilities in Brevard County.
