Developmental Disabilities Mill Levy and the Developmental Disabilities Mill Levy Grant Program

With the unanimous support of the Board of Douglas County Commissioners, the Developmental Disabilities Mill Levy (Referendum 4A), was placed on the ballot in 2001, proposing a one-mill property tax dedicated to services for persons with developmental disabilities.

Approximately 95 percent of Mill Levy Fund supports the County’s Community-Centered Board, Developmental Pathways, while five percent is retained for the Douglas County Developmental Disabilities Grant Program.

Douglas County Developmental Disabilities Grant Program

Since the Grant Program was initiated in 2002, more than $3 million in competitive grants have been awarded to organizations delivering local programs supporting Douglas County residents with developmental disabilities.

Grants typically range between $1,000 and $25,000 and are awarded to projects and services that demonstrate innovative and collaborative efforts, as well as best practices in serving those with developmental disabilities.  You may review detailed information on the 2016 Grant Program approved by the Board of County Commissioners in 2016.
