The Anacortes Accessible Community Advisory Committee has the ability to request funding from the Governor's Committee on Disability Issues and Employment for projects/programs that will help people with disabilities.
ACAC Grant Process
The ACAC applies for grants from the Governor's Committee on Disability Issues and Employment on behalf of Anacortes through Skagit County.
ACAC members bring forward project ideas on their own or from the community. (The ACAC has had a community forum for feedback on disability gaps and needs.)
Every ACAC project must be sponsored by a committee member who will be in charge of the project on behalf of the ACAC.
ACAC Project Plan documents with budget information must be filled out for each potential project.
The ACAC members vet and prioritize each project by voting on them at a designated ACAC meeting.
Once the Project Plan forms are completed, they are forwarded to the Skagit County ACAC for review.
A list of prioritized ACAC Project Plans are sent to the Skagit County Commissioners for review during their quarterly meeting for processing and forwarding to the Governor's Committee on Disability Issues and Employment.
