Apply for a DD Council Grant

One of the primary purposes of the Ohio DD Council is to offer grant opportunities. This is done in one of two ways:

  • Specific Grant Requests: The Ohio DD Council will issue a "Notice of Funds Available" (NOFA) when applications are being accepted for a competitive grant opportunity. 
  • Discretionary Fund Requests: The Ohio DD Council has a "Discretionary Fund" available for people and organizations who send Council specific funding requests. Requests for this type of funding are accepted throughout the year. 

Go to the DD Suite website to see current grant opportunities offered by the Ohio DD Council.
