Since 2001, the DDML grant has awarded over $5 million in funding for local services supporting residents with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD). DDML grant awards are allocated through an annual competitive grant process.
The DDML grant is intended to support agencies currently serving Douglas County residents with I/DD and those who would like to start serving this population. All local agencies serving the I/DD population are welcome to apply for these funds. Organizations are strongly encouraged to apply for services that are new, innovative, and those that fill current “gaps” in services. Agencies may apply for multiple grants for different projects.
