A guide has been created to assist those who are interested in writing a proposal for Council funding. The "Submitting a Proposal for Funding Consideration" PowerPoint provides insight on the different sections of the DD Suite application, tips on writing the proposal, what reviewers look for when considering proposals for funding, and how proposals are scored. The guide is attached to each RFA posted in DD Suite at

​​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 $60,000 annually for Opportunity Subawards. These one-year awards do not exceed $15,000 and can focus on any of the five-year state plan goals.
  • Formal Subawards range in funding from $20,000 to $50,000. Formal Subawards are responses to RFAs related to specific five-year state plan goals. Some formal subawards may extend beyond one year.
