Consumer Leadership Development

Consumer Leadership Development Fund (CLDF)

The CLDF was established to make funds available to help offset the costs for self-advocates and/or parents/family/guardians of children/adult children with developmental disabilities to participate in conferences, workshops, and other training opportunities, that will increase their knowledge of disability issues and increase their skills as advocates. Funds are reimbursable up to a set limit determined by the NGCDD Executive Committee. Any taxes incurred as a result of receiving funds from the CLDF will be the sole responsibility of the recipient and a W9-IRS form must be submitted upon receipt of the funds by the recipient.
