Opportunity Grant Announcement - 2015
Opportunity Grant Application - 2015
The Nebraska Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities awards federally assisted subgrants to grantees that promote the goals and objectives outlined in the five-year state plan. Eligible applicants are profit and nonprofit entities, state agencies, institutions of higher education, or local subdivisions of government. Two types of grants are awarded:
The Council sets aside $40,000 annually for Opportunity Grants. These awards do not exceed $10,000 and are awarded twice a year. Generally requests for applications (RFAs) go out in December and July with the one year grants beginning in April and October.
The Council awards Formal Grants annually. Typically, these grants range in funding from $20,000 to $50,000. Formal Grants are responses to specific RFAs and are generally issued by the Council in the spring and awarded in August. These grants can be for more than one year but cannot exceed three years.
Grant announcements will be posted on this Website or can be mailed upon request by contacting our office.
