State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Project Overview State of the States Project logo


In addition to his Coleman Institute activities, Professor Braddock has secured competitive federal grants for over $7.6 million through his academic appointment in CU’s Department of Psychiatry.  In FY 12-13 alone, he was successful in securing $2.1 million. One of these grants, for $1.5 million over five years, is the State of the State in Developmental Disabilities Project.  It has been continuously funded by the US Government’s Administration on Developmental Disabilities for more than 30 years.  A second grant of $600,000 was received from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), U.S. Department of Education, and built on the State of the States Project and extended its focus to mental health and physical disability.  The National Study of Public Spending for Disability in the United States was funded at $600,000 over three years.  It expanded the state by state study of spending and services for people with developmental disabilities to psychiatric and physical disabilities.  For more information on the State of the States project including generating individual state charts, visit State of the States website.
