NJCDD Current Grants
One of the ways the NJCDD works to promote the goals and objectives in its five-year plan is by offering grants to organizations and programs that are true innovators in providing services to people with developmental disabilities. Each fiscal year, the Council accepts proposals from qualified applicants. Once grant proposals are evaluated, grants may be awarded on single or multi-year bases.
When selecting programs to support, the NJCDD searches for new, creative, and sustainable programs that broaden opportunities for people with developmental disabilities in New Jersey.
The following is a list of the programs and organizations that are currently receiving grants from the NJCDD.
