The Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council (MODDC) has approved $150,000 to fund a three-year sexuality education project for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). MODDC is currently seeking a partner to implement a comprehensive sexuality education training for self-advocates and advocates.

The MODDC will host a question and answer webinar about the project and application requirements at 2 p.m. CST, Wednesday, May 4, 2022.

Questions should be submitted in writing to moddc@moddcouncil.org, in care of Leigh Anne Haun, by 12 p.m. CST, Monday May 2, 2022; however, the session will allow for additional questions.
