Subaward Funding
The Nebraska Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities awards federally funded subawards to subrecipients who promote the goals and objectives outlined in the Council's 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 subawards are awarded: opportunity and formal.
  • The Council sets aside $60,000 annually for opportunity subawards. These awards do not exceed $15,000 and can focus on any of the five-year state plan goals. Generally, these Requests for Applications (RFAs) are announced in December and June with the one-year subawards beginning in April and October. RFAs may be released outside of these dates if funds are available.
  • The Council awards formal subawards annually. Typically, these subawards range in funding from $20,000 to $50,000. Formal Subawards are responses to RFAs related to specific five-year state plan goals. These RFAs are generally announced in the spring and awarded in August. Work on these subawards begins in October.
