WITH Foundation and American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry Invite Proposals Addressing the Intersections of Racial Equity and Healthcare Equity
The WITH Foundation and the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD) has issued a request for proposals for projects that address the intersections of racial equity and healthcare equity for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
Through the RFP, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of collaborative proposals focused on projects that address the intersections of racial equity and healthcare equity for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Proposals should use one of the following approaches:
Implementation: Support implementation of models, such as projects that support community-based PCPs in providing care to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) adults with I/DD.
Educational resources: Develop additional educational resources for primary care providers who serve BIPOC adults with I/DD.
Research: Support regional or national research related to the care BIPOC adults with I/DD receive from primary care providers.
A secondary goal of this RFP is to foster new partnerships or significantly enhance existing partnerships between disability organizations, self-advocates, community organizations, and healthcare providers. Proposals and partnerships that are led by or include BIPOC-led organizations are strongly encouraged.
Eligible applicants include tax-exempt nonprofits as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, including healthcare, community, and disability organizations based and operating in the United States.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the WITH Foundation website.
Deadline: August 31, 2021
