The Nebraska Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities awards federally funded subawards to subrecipients
who 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 subawards are awarded:
The Council sets aside $40,000 annually for Opportunity Subawards. These awards do not exceed $10,000. Generally, these Requests for Applications (RFAs) go out 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 specific RFAs. These are generally released by the Council in the spring and awarded in August.
Subaward announcements will be posted on this Website or can be mailed upon request by contacting our office.
