It couldn't be more timely: ACL funding opportunity for supported decision-making

A huge theme at the 3rd World Congress on Guardianship was supported decision-making.  I was pleased and suprised to find this in my mailbox this morning:

ACL Funding Opportunity: Supported Decision Making

The purpose of this project is to create a training and technical assistance/resource center on supported decision making. The Center will collect and disseminate materials on supported decision-making, including the experiences of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in making informed decisions with the use of supports. The project will also include a proposal to develop measures to compare outcomes for people with I/DD and older Americans who use supported decision-making methods and practices to exert control and choice in their own lives compared with outcomes for individuals under substituted decision-making arrangements.

Deadline:  Electronically submitted applications must be submitted no later than July 2, 2014 at 11:59 p.m.
