​​Subaward Funding*

The Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities awards federal funds in the form of subawards to subrecipients who promote the goals and objectives outlined in the Council's five-year state plan​​. Eligible entities include local governments, Indian tribes, institutions of higher education, and nonprofit organizations. Individuals and for-profit entities may not apply for subaward funding. 

Requests for Applications for Opportunity Subawards and Formal Subawards are released in June for projects to begin in October.

  • The Council sets aside $80,000 annually for Opportunity Subawards. These awards can focus on any of the five-year state plan goals and may be renewed for an additional one (1) year period, subject to DHHS' discretion.
  • Formal Subawards range in funding from $30,000 to $6​0,000. Formal Subawards are responses to RFAs related to specific five-year state plan goals. Some formal subawards may extend beyond one year.

*The Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities is supported by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $527,570 with 100% funding by ACL/HHS.
