The Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities (KCDD) seeks partners to develop innovative solutions to problems facing people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. Based on the Five-Year State Plan, the Council Issues Calls for Investments and considers proposals that focus on enhancing services and pursuing systemic change that can achieve the desired outcomes stated in the Call for Investment.

This process emphasizes partnerships and shared success. Both the Council and grantees must work together to clearly define results, sustainability, and measures of success including systemic change.

The announcements are published in the Kansas Register and disseminated through the Council email list, posted on the KCDD website and through social media outlets.
