Dear Stakeholders:

On February 1, the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) issued four (4) Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs):  Dental Program, Epilepsy, Family Advocate and Latinx Outreach.  As a follow-up to that announcement, the DDD wanted to let potential applicants know that each of the 4 NOFOs has been updated to (1) provide additional information to applicants regarding where to reach out with questions on the grant programs or the applications; (2) how to request paper copies of the application; (3) include additional federal requirements including related to reporting; and (4) specific to the Dental NOFO, to clarify that the awards will not be region-specific.  Please utilize the links at the end of this communication to view each of the NOFOs.

As a reminder, the DDD is hosting a technical assistance session today, Wednesday, February 9, 2022, to discuss grant (GATA) requirements, updates that are being made to the 4 grant programs, and answer questions from potential applicants.  Please see below for information on the session including the link to register.
