Grants of up to $1,200 will support organizations that educate residential staff about caring for adults with developmental disabilities and focus on enhancing residents’ quality of life.
Qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations should apply online by Feb. 1, 2017. A link to the online grant application is available at www.akroncf.org/ApplyParentCoalition. Grants will be announced in February.
