The proposed project will have numerous benefits on the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. Before Hurricane Katrina, many individual with developmental disabilities in Louisiana lived in institutions where they were directly cared for by personal care attendants. Following the Hurricane, Institutions are being closed and the former residents will be living in the community. As a result these people will now be responsible for their personal care, which will be a completely new task for them. Projects are needed to develop training materials that will help these individuals learn to live in the community and care for themselves. The proposed project will conduct activities that will inform the sound design of future physical activity and healthy eating interventions for individuals with developmental disabilities receiving supported independent living services in the Greater New Orleans area. The insights gained from the proposed project will be critical to the development of highquality, tailored health promotion programs to increase physical activity and health eating among persons with ID in order to enhance their health, well-being, and independent participation in society. It is anticipated that the project results will inform future activities to promote physical activity and health eating among individuals with developmental disabilities. There would be detrimental consequences without this funding. Without funding, the project would not be able to conduct the necessary activities that will enhance the ability of individuals with developmental disabilities to achieve full independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion in society. Health promotion interventions to increase physical activity and promote health eating have the potential to enhance function, prevent chronic conditions, and increase quality of life in person with developmental disabilities. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Johnson, Administration on Developmental Disabilities, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 370 L’Enfant Promenade, SW., MAIL STOP: Humphrey Building, 405D,Washington, DC 20447.

This notice announces the award of a single-source non-competition continuation award to the Mississippi Institute for Disability Studies, University of Southern Mississippi (the Institute) to address the needs of underserved and unserved individuals affected by Hurricane Katrina. Lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina reflected that there was insufficient capacity in relief efforts to address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities during and following the hurricane. With this award this Institute, which currently has a grant from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) to operate a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Research and Services (UCEDD), will expand its mission to develop and conduct the necessary training program to produce a cadre of case managers with expertise in working within the complex service system serving people with developmental disabilities, which has been expanded to include agencies such as FEMA. The proposed project will have numerous benefits on the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities affected by Hurricane Katrina. Individuals with developmental disabilities were the most vulnerable during the response/ evacuation period and they are the most vulnerable during the stages of recovery PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58627 and rebuilding. The service infrastructure for individuals with developmental disabilities was significantly disrupted and many people lost key supports, such as assistive devices, service animals, and public communication systems. Moreover, the Hurricane had a devastating impact on the mental health of disaster victims with developmental disabilities, which is further compromised by a lack of mental health services following the storm. As people with developmental disabilities and communities as a whole tried to recover from these factors caused by Hurricane Katrina, case managers from various agencies or organizations emerged to assist in the recovery process. Because in many affected areas, especially along the coastal areas, it will be a long time before life is as it once was, trained case managers who understand the special needs of people with developmental disabilities who are victims of disaster will be needed on a long-term basis.

This notice announces the award of a single-source non-competition continuation award to the Texas Center for Disability Studies, University of Texas, Austin (the Center) to address the needs of underserved and unserved individuals affected by Hurricane Katrina. Lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina reflected that there was insufficient capacity in relief efforts to address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities during and following the hurricane. With this award this Center, which currently has a grant from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) to operate a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), will expand its mission to address gaps in the Texas disaster relief efforts and the subsequent services to people with developmental disabilities. This proposed project is consistent with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act, which among other provisions, requires that UCEDDs assist underserved and unserved populations of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families through community outreach, capacity building, and systems change. The proposed project will develop and conduct training around Texas that will increase emergency preparedness by creating a pool of disaster response systems navigators ready and able to assist individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in a disaster. The navigators will be trained to navigate both State and local health and human service systems in order to quickly identify and access services for the targeted individuals. The navigator model proposed could easily be adapted by other States to improve their emergency readiness as well. The outcomes of this project will strengthen Texas’ ability to respond to the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities in the event of a disaster by: 1. Expanding awareness of the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities in the event of a disaster. 2. Expanding the pool of volunteer disaster response navigators for individuals with developmental disabilities. 3. Creating a data base of these navigators for the Red Cross, so that these navigators may be mobilized with other first response teams. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4.
