Overview:

The WITH Foundation (WITH), the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD) and Ability Central are partnering in an effort to foster the development of additional resources, programmatic models, and/or advocacy related to Supported Decision-making* for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)*. This RFP is intended to promote innovation in the use of supported decision-making within healthcare settings and beyond. The geographic areas of focus are self-selected by the proposing organization/collaborative partners but must be within the United States. As a result of this RFP, it is anticipated that at least 4 grant awards will be made – at least two (2) of the grants awarded will be to nonprofits located in California and at least two (2) will also be to nonprofits located outside of California.

WITH is a private foundation that promotes comprehensive and accessible healthcare for adults with developmental disabilities. The mission of AADMD is to improve the quality, outcomes, and value of healthcare for individuals with developmental disabilities and their circle of support. Ability Central makes grants to improve communication and information access for people with disabilities. 

WITH, AADMD, and Ability Central embrace person-centered innovations and culturally competent care*; We want to see people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their advocates, healthcare providers, and others smoothly navigate in today’s complex world.
