Agenda Item #26


Title
Adults with Disabilities Grant Application 2010-11

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 $448,907 for 2010-11, a 5% decrease from that of 2009-10.



Recommendation

Approve the Grant proposal request of $448,907 to serve Adults with Disabilities in Brevard County.
