The Arlington Disability Advisory Commission is a 13-member citizen advisory group appointed by the County Board to direct community attention to the full range of needs of persons with physical disabilities, advise the County government on ways to meet the needs of persons with physical disabilities, and advise and assist the County government in seeking compliance with Federal and State legislative mandates. Commission members participate on the Planning Commission's Site Plan Review Committee, Community Development Citizens Advisory Committee, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. All meetings are open to the public.
The 2015-2016 Regional Grants to Disability Groups Application Packet is now available. These grants are awarded to non-profit groups providing services to Arlington residents with physical and sensory disabilities. Successful projects increase or maintain independence and community integration through empowerment focused services. These grant awards are for two fiscal years, FY2015 and FY2016. Average grants are approximately $20,000, but vary depending on the project.
Grant proposals are due no later than Monday September 30, 2013. The Disability Advisory Commission will review proposals and make funding recommendations to the County Board in early 2014.
Contact Anna Maynard by email or phone at 703-228-7096 (V/TTY) further information or questions about the grant.
The ACDAC meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:15 PM in Conference Room Azalea (A) Lobby Level of the Arlington County Government Building at 2100 Clarendon Boulevard. All meetings are open to the public.
