Invites Proposals for Project Funding
The Alexandria Commission on Persons with Disabilities (ACPD) is seeking applications from non-profit organizations and community groups for the Virginia Rehabilitative Services Incentive Fund (RSIF).
The RSIF provides seed money for innovative programs or services, to close gaps in unmet needs, and to increase the quality of life for persons with physical or sensory disabilities.
Proposed projects must address needs identified in the ACPD’s 2006 Needs Assessment report by providing a new program or expanding access to existing services. Areas of particular need for Alexandria residents with disabilities include accessible transportation, medical and therapeutic services, and accessible housing.
The RSIF process is competitive, and the ACPD can submit only one project proposal for consideration, which is then reviewed and scored by the Virginia Disability Services Council. The maximum award is $15,000, with a 10 percent match required.
Proposals are due no later than Tuesday, April 1, and should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a complete RSIF application package or a copy of the ACPD’s most recent Needs Assessment, please visit alexandriava.gov/humanrights
