The Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCDD) is pleased to announce the availability of $210,000 in federal funds under provisions of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act)(P.L. 106-402)(DD Act) for Replication of the Minnesota Partners in Policymaking® Program and All Related Activities.
Proposals are being sought from any public organization, private for profit business, or private non-profit organization that has 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

Funding is available for a five year time period but one-year at a time. Continuation funding is dependent upon the availability of federal funds, satisfactory performance of the contractor, and any changes in the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (DD Act) resulting from Congressional action.
