Financial Assistance to Attend Training

The South Dakota Council on Developmental Disabilities has funds available to assist people with developmental disabilities and/or their family members to attend in-state conferences, training events, committees, and other similar activities OR to attend out-of-state conferences or training events when there is nothing similar held in South Dakota. Funds may cover registration fees, lodging, meals, transportation (mileage, air fare, parking fees, taxis, etc.), personal assistance services, child care or respite care expenses.

These funds are provided in an effort to empower people with developmental disabilities and their family members with the opportunities, experiences, resources and information they need to participate meaningfully in the decisions that are being made which affect their lives or the lives of their family members with developmental disabilities. Visit http://dhs.sd.gov/cdd.aspx or call 1-800-265-9684 or (605) 773-6369 for assistance.
