NCCDD Announces New Registry of Unmet Needs RFA

A Request for Applications (RFA) is the way the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) asks for proposals for initiatives that will help the Council achieve the goals outlined in its Five-Year State Plan. (https://www.nccdd.org/the-council/five-year-plan.html)

You will need to submit an application using a web-based system called DD Suite. (http://www.ddsuite.org)
