Details about Our Annual Idea Submission Process
As a grantmaking organization, we aim to fill gaps experienced by Arizonans with developmental disabilities. You are a partner in helping us raise the voice of people with disabilities. We need your help to do that.
You’re invited to be part of this important conversation so we can advance innovative solutions. Each year, we will announce the opening of our process to submit an idea to the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council through our email newsletter, social media channels, and here on our website. This will typically occur once or twice a year.
If you conduct business in Arizona, you and/or your organization is qualified to submit a Request for Information application, which will be available to fill out via online form or a Microsoft Word document. A person or an organization may submit multiple Request for Information forms.
We need you to share the needs and gaps you have observed in your communities. We also want new or innovative projects or ideas for what kind of support the Council should provide to address these gaps. You are also welcome to share what your community is currently doing to support people with developmental disabilities. The Council may use any of this information to guide our research, advocacy, and future grant solicitations to support innovative ideas or projects in Arizona.
Things to Note:
- We welcome your ideas and we consider each submission. However, the Council doesn’t guarantee any financial agreement with an organization that submits ideas as part of this process.
- If you have any questions, please email Erica McFadden at [email protected]
