As part of the WNY Partnership Coalition I am forwarding this letter and attached application so you can consider submitting it for the 2017 award (given at the 2018 Developmental Disabilities Awareness conference in May)
Hello self-advocacy groups and advisors.
We are sending you this letter to explain the attached application. The Western NY Partnership Coalition focuses on what service providers do well for and with people who have disabilities (Best Practices). We are asking that you look at the application and if you have some input, write it down and submit the application to us for consideration. Also, send it to someone in the agency, so that the agency can apply. If your agency does some good and innovative things we would like them to apply to win the award. We believe that people with disabilities should be part of the application process and give their input. This is totally voluntary and up to you if you think the agency that you are affiliated with deserves to be recognized for their best practices.
