Grants of up to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations to advance racial equity and health equity for BIPOC individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Funding is intended to promote culturally competent care. Grant funds may be requested to support research, the development of educational resources for medical providers, and for the implementation of projects supporting community-based PCPs in providing care to BIPOC adults with I/DD.

This is an invitation for collaborative proposals which focus on projects that address the intersections of racial equity and healthcare equity for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Proposals should specifically support primary care providers (including dentists) in providing culturally competent care to BIPOC adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Proposals should also address one of the following focus areas:

  • Implementation: Support implementation of models, i.e., projects that support community-based PCPs in providing care to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) adults with I/DD;
  • Educational resources: Develop additional educational resources for Primary Care Providers who serve BIPOC adults with I/DD; and
  • Research: Support regional or national research related to the care BIPOC adults with I/DD receive from Primary Care Providers.

A secondary goal of this RFP is to foster new partnerships or significantly enhance existing partnerships between disability organizations, self-advocates, community organizations, and healthcare providers. Proposals and partnerships that are led by or include BIPOC-led organizations are strongly encouraged.

Through this RFP, WITH Foundation seeks to support opportunities in which healthcare and its delivery can be enhanced in ways that are intentional in working with and serving BIPOC adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
