Image with words Notice of Funds Available and Ohio Developmental Disabilities CouncilOne of the primary purposes of the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council is to offer grant opportunities for interested organizations and individuals to apply.

For competitive selection grants, this process begins with the issuance of a Notice of Funds Available (NOFA). Some people also call these Requests for Proposals (RFPs). 

When a NOFA is issued by the Ohio DD Council, we announce it on the Council's website, the DD Suite grant application website, the Council's Facebook and Twitter pages, and by email

Listed below are our NOFAs for current grant opportunties.
