Under the program, formula grants are allotted to States based on population, financial need, and need for service. P&As provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities based on the identification of goals in the areas of emphasis listed in the DD Act and based on public input. Section 291 of HAVA does not outline specific application requirements for P&As. Therefore, ADD has the discretion to alter the process by which P&As are notified of their annual allocations. Accordingly, P&As will no longer be required to submit an application; and, an annual Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will no longer be published. Instead, ADD will now rely solely on the official notification provided to P&As by ACF’s Division of Mandatory Grants. This notice informs P&As of the availability of their annual award allocations.
