~~“The Council staff administers this reimbursement program which provides funding for Arkansans with developmental disabilities, their family members, or their guardians to participate in professional or informational conferences, legislative advocacy skills training events, public forums, focus groups, hearings and other similar activities. This fund is designed to empower individuals with 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. This fund has a set total maximum amount available for use each fiscal year, and when that amount is expended funding will not be available until after the beginning of the next fiscal year. Other restrictions apply.”
