West Virginia Statewide Independent Living Council
This grant will help to support the 2010 West Virginia Disability Caucus to be held July 26 through 28, 2010 in the state capital of Charleston, West Virginia. Outreach will be conducted to identify one hundred twenty-five people with disabilities, family members and advocates to participate, with particular emphasis given to those who have never attended in the past. The participants will become more knowledgeable about the Americans with Disabilities Act and other topics as well as develop their leadership skills and self-confidence. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338).
