The California State Council on Developmental Disabilities (Council) administers grants to community-based organizations to fund new and innovative program development projects. All projects are intended to implement the California State Strategic Plan goals and objectives and improve and enhance services for Californians with developmental disabilities and their families.
Program Development Grants (PDG) provide funding for new approaches to serving Californians with developmental disabilities that are part of an overall strategy for systemic change. During Cycle 44, the Council is funding statewide projects in Mental Health & Inclusive Education. Selected proposals are linked below.
PDG is an important vehicle used by the Council to meet both the federal and state mandates. PDG projects are the primary method of directly providing the resources needed to initiate new and innovative programs/services for Californians with developmental disabilities and their families.
