UCEDD National Training Initiative Supplemental Grant: It is well documented that the United States is becoming an increasingly racially and ethnically diverse country. By 2050 there will be no ethnic majority in the United States (U.S.). There is a need to ensure that the disability community keeps pace with and is responsive to the rapidly changing demographics of the country and the UCEDDs should play a critical role in such an effort. The DD Act recognizes the important role that UCEDDs play in enhancing the diversity of the workforce, requiring that UCEDDs enhance efforts to recruit and retain underrepresented groups at all levels in order to respond to the needs of nation’s burgeoning diverse communities. It is essential now more than ever to ensure that UCEDDs are well positioned to address the unprecedented growth of diverse communities, including the growth in the number of people with disabilities, to ensure the future yields prosperity for all. To this end, UCEDDs need to know how to align their training programs and overall UCEDD organizational framework to truly reflect and respond to our nation’s rich diversity.
AIDD plans to award on a competitive basis, one year National Training Initiative grants to multiple existing grantees; the University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs) to pay for the federal share of a diversity fellowship program. Funds are to used to support recruitment and retention of traineees from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to participate in a fellowship experience at the UCEDD and to work towards the long term goals of:

Increasing diversity of leadership, staff and governing bodies across the DD network;
Building cultural competence capacity with the leadership, staff, and governing bodies across the DD network;
Increasing the number of persons from underrepresented racial, ethnic groups, people with disabilities, people from disadvantaged backgrounds who benefit from AIDD supported programs; and
Improving the recruitment and employment of underrepresented groups including racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and people from diverse or disadvantaged backgrounds in the UCEDD.
