The Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announces the availability of fiscal year 2005 funds to award a supplemental grant to at least one University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD) to pay for the Federal share of the cost of a training initiative on a critical and emerging need of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. After consulting with relevant, informed sources, including individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, ADD identified the lack of collaboration and participation in the development of research projects as the unmet need facing individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to be addressed by this funding announcement. This funding opportunity will support one national training initiative that will strengthen and expand the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities and their family members in participatory action research projects at UCEDDs. This program announcement contains instructions for the submission of the fiscal year 2005 grant applications for the national training initiative.
