WIHD UCEDD has been awarded the National Training Initiative grant from the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), a part of the Administration for Community Living (ACL).

  • Improve the recruitment and employment of under-represented groups, including people with disabilities, within the UCEDD and in the workforce
  • Increase the diversity of leadership, staff, and governing bodies across the DD network
  • Build cultural competence with the leadership, staff, and governing bodies across the DD network
  • Increase the number of people from under-represented groups and disadvantage backgrounds who benefit from AIDD- supported programs.
