Agenda Item #24


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.



Recommendation

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