Requests may be submitted by mail, hand-delivery, email or fax to the Council office. Incomplete applications will be returned with requests for additional information, and will be reconsidered only if the resubmitted paperwork is complete and still meets the 10 week timeline.

For approved applicants, the Council will fund partial costs of all necessary expenses related to attending a conference or meeting. The Council requires that persons wishing attend an event with Council support to provide a minimum of 25 percent of costs from personal or third party funds, such as funds from other state agencies, private foundations, public and private service agencies, an employer, family, or community of faith. Funds used for any category other than the above will not count toward the 25 percent personal investment.

The maximum request of the Council must not exceed $1000 for individuals, or $2000 per family. For a family to receive full funding, there must be a relevant reason for attendance such as a conference track on siblings, or a clinical or experiential opportunity with an expert in the field.
