Empowering People with Disabilities

Leadership Development Project

The DD Act requires the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council to work on these three areas:

  • Support a state advocacy organization led by individuals with developmental disabilities.
  • Support leaders with developmental disabilities to give leadership training to future leaders with developmental disabilities.
  • Support and expand individuals with developmental disabilities to participate in cross-disability and culturally diverse leadership.

The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council will fund several projects that meet the requirements of the DD Act, as well as to: 

  • Empower leaders and advocates.
  • Provide leadership opportunities.
  • Increase advocacy skills so people speak up.

Grantee: To be determined
Amount: $70,000
