The Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Funds (RFF) opportunity to award grant funds for Sheltered Workshop Transition Services.
The overall objective of this RFF is to find BDDS waiver providers to support transformation of the organizational structures and service delivery models from facility-based to community-based service delivery models with a focus on community-based employment. The outcome will include, during the contracted period, the expectation that a targeted number of adults with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) obtain individual integrated community-based employment for at least minimum wage or engage in self-employment with the same income level expectation. In general, respondents to this RFF will propose to transform their governance, organizational structure, business/fiscal models and programmatic practices to increase the delivery of integrated employment services and reduce the use of facility-based services while creating roadmaps for other BDDS providers to do the same.
The State may award more than one grant. Grantees are responsible for performing all requirements of the scope of work.
For this RFF, only Respondents who meet the following mandatory requirements will be considered:
