U.S Department of Health and Human Services announced today the contribution of $1.87 million to The Arc of the United States, the largest non-profit advocacy organization in the U.S. committed to helping those with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.  The money is intended to go towards a national resource and information center to provide information about Autism and other developmental disabilities. 

The new information center will provide families with information and resources in their own communities. There is also the plan to create national networking – including internet-based networking, sponsoring regional events, and assisting community based organizations with training and technical assistance.

The Autistic Self-Advocacy Network and Self Advocates Becoming Empowered will partner with The Arc in this initiative.  The official name will be: Autism NOW: The National Autism Resource and Information Center.
