Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribal governments, and IHEs to provide transition services and activities for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to increase and enhance collaborations across existing local systems to maximize a seamless experience and outcome of youth with ID/DD as they transition between school and work in the community.
The Administration for Community Living, Administration on Disabilities (AoD) seeks to fund approximately eight (8) community-based collaboration models in select communities as demonstration projects that will design and test effective transition services and activities to increase the number of youth with ID/DD:
Many students and youth with disabilities do not have the same opportunities as their peers without disabilities to pursue higher education, training, and careers. Multiple complex systems each play a role at the community level in ensuring that youth with disabilities have the supports, services, and resources they need to successfully transition into their post-secondary life. Yet, despite the various federal programs available, CIE rates for individuals with ID/DD are alarmingly low. In response to this challenge, additional investments are being made to accelerate change to enhance local level community solutions for the targeted population of youth with ID/DD.
This project supports the four AoD priorities of:
The projects will also support the Administration’s priorities to address the COVID-19 pandemic, racial inequities, and the American economy. ACL recognizes that strengthening the transition process for youth with ID/DD is a critical component to addressing multiple inequities and creating better opportunities for individuals with ID/DD living well within the community.
