In case you miss the Weekly Update on Friday, we will have you covered by reprising the article in the next Monday ANCOR Capitol Correspondence. No more fear of missing out (FOMO)!
This project aims to equip community-based organizations (CBOs) supporting people with varying disabilities with business resources, information, and training that promote sustainability in a changing environment.
This project is a collaboration led by National Association of States United on Aging and Disability (NASUAD) and supported by ANCOR, National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS), National Council on Independent Living (NCIL), American Association on Health & Disability, University of Minnesota, National Council on Aging, and the National Disability Rights Network.
Within the structure of the project, there are two Learning Collaboratives:
This column will bring you updates on the progress of the state teams participating in the collaboratives, lessons learned and other activities on the grant.
Currently we are preparing for the spring meeting where the teams will report out on the progress of their state teams and lessons they are learning as they work through the toolkit developed within the grant.
Next week we will take a look at the Toolkit and the resources available to all via the HCBS Business Acumen Center.
