In order to improve and increase services for Californians with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families, the State Council on Developmental Disabilities (Council/SCDD) provides grants each year to community-based organizations. Program Development Grants (PDG) are used by the Council to meet federal and state mandates and provide resources to build new and innovative programs and services. These grants are an important part of a Council State Plan strategy to create change in systems that provide services and supports to PwI/DD and their families throughout California.

The Council has a total of $260,000 available to fund Cycle 45 PDG projects in four (4) proposed areas: Education, Employment, Health and Safety, and Housing. The Council will consider all proposal submissions and choose one (1) or more that will not exceed the full $260,000 budgeted amount. The Council understands that the final list of approved projects may not address all four (4) of the targeted topic areas.
