Grant Opportunities

DODD competitively awards grants for work that supports Ohio's developmental disabilities system and the department's mission of continuous improvement of the quality of life for Ohioans with developmental disabilities and their families. All competitive grants follow a similar award process with some variation due to the funding source and program structure.

All questions and application materials must be submitted to dodd.grant.applications@dodd.ohio.gov. Subject lines of emails must contain the applicant’s organization name and the project name identified on the Request for Proposal, known as an RFP.

Find grant opportunities with Ohio Employment First at ohioemploymentfirst.org

Grant proposals, the Grant Application Form, and any other required documentation identified in this RFP must be submitted electronically to dodd.grant.applications@dodd.ohio.gov.

DODD Grant Opportunities Withdrawn

Governor Mike DeWine called for budget reductions in his press conference on March 23 in order to mitigate the decline in state revenue expected as an outcome of the coronavirus (COVID-19) state of emergency. DODD is awaiting guidance from the Office of Budget and Management regarding the implementation and scale of these budget reductions for the department. Given these developments, DODD is withdrawing the competitive grant and contract opportunities related to the Employer Transformation and Building Innovative Service Models projects. Should the department re-post the requests for proposal (RFPs) at a later date, all applicants will be required to resubmit their proposals at that time, as the requirements of the RFPs are subject to change.
