Description Technical Specs Extended Information

Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) received funding from the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) to administer the Self-Advocacy Organizational Development Grants, which served as pilot projects for federal funding of self-advocacy organizations. The goal was to help self-advocacy organizations become more independent and achieve 501c3 status which is also known as becoming a tax-exempt non-profit organization. AUCD created this toolkit based on feedback from self-advocates who participated in these Self-Advocacy Organizational Development Grants, who expressed interest in writing grant applications. This toolkit is designed to help more self-advocacy organizations apply for grant in the future.

This toolkit is organized to help you answer questions that you might have when you are applying for a grant. A checklist is provided for easy reference (see Appendix A). Words that are bolded will be in the glossary at the end of the toolkit (see Appendix B). Examples (see Appendix B-D) are also provided for grant announcements and applications. Resources for additional grantwriting information are in Appendix F. Think of this as a road map. The beginning is always a good place to start.
