Individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are eligible to apply for funding to attend conferences that pertain to their disabilities. The Consumer Involvement Program is administered by the ARC of Illinois.
Applicants may receive up to $300 per conference or $500 per family per year. The conference may be in-state or out-of-state. Other rules apply, and these are clearly stated on the application form. Find the application here.
These stipends allow those directly affected by a developmental disability to participate in and contribute to discussions of direct interest to them.
