Foundation / Corporation
UJA-Federation of New York
Grants to New York nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for programs that support adults with disabilities. Funding is intended to address the needs of adults in their 30s, 40s, and 50s with autism and associated developmental disabilities. Eligible applicants serve New York City, Nassau and Suffolk in Long Island, and Northern and Southern Westchester. The goal of the program is to help individuals with disabilities and their families plan for the future. Applicants should also explain what the COVID epidemic has taught them about the variability of future planning and how they will account for these learnings.
UJA-Federation is committed to helping families undertake comprehensive scenario planning so that they have multiple options in place as their children age. Helping individuals and families understand the variety of options around long-term care, housing, financial support, and more, will ensure peace of mind, security, and comfort for parents, caregivers, and the individuals themselves.
The goal of these grants should be to plan for program launch, including working on detailed plans with collaborating agency partners, recruiting and training staff, and developing clear goals and plans for data collection and evaluation, so that if renewed the programs can begin immediately. If time allows, applicants are encouraged to begin implementing programming and services. Potential examples of eligible programs and services include case managers/coaches housed at local agencies to help guide families through the planning process; a volunteer-based program that follows a similar model; peer-to-peer support models; an online resource directory with extended personal support.
UJA is specifically interested in funding programs that are collaborative partnerships between two or more agencies so that multiple resources from expert agencies can be brought to bear for clients through a single point of access. When identifying partnerships, please keep in mind leveraging each agency’s unique strengths, such as disabilities expertise and connections to the Jewish community. It is important that as much of the greater NYC area as possible receives programs and services, and so applications that include plans for virtual service implementation or hybrid virtual-in person service models will be strongly considered.
Plans for data collection and sustainability are key components of this grant and must be clearly articulated in the applications, including metrics that will demonstrate how success will be evaluated. A non-exhaustive list of potential options to promote sustainability includes hybrid pro-bono/fee for service programs, sliding scale fee options, and applying for government funding. Including thoughtful ways that volunteers can be leveraged in program and service delivery is also encouraged.
