UFC offers training grant for agencies that support individuals with disabilities and their families. These grants are intended to provide workshops and trainings for family members who wish to strengthen their skills to become more active leaders, but are unable to attend our more intensive Family Leadership Series. Family support agencies, individuals/family members or family groups within an agency are welcome to apply for grant money. Any training (not including educational advocacy***) that will further a family's capacity to effectively obtain quality services in the community for their family member will be considered.

Since the Federation for Children with Special Needs provides training in educational advocacy, we would not want to duplicate their efforts.
