  • The Key Campaign will be held in Juneau on February 18th - 20th, 2015. The Governor’s Council on Disabilities & Special Education has limited funds available for non-Council members to receive airfare only stipends. The Council will cover the costs of airfare only, which must be arranged through the Council office. Room and board are the responsibility of the individual traveler or sponsoring agency. Recipients will be selected from as many regions of Alaska as possible in accordance with the following priorities:  

    1.    Self-advocates and families that are passionate about sharing their story with others
    2.    First-time Key Campaign attendees
    3.    Self Advocates and families who are unable to attend without financial assistance
    4.    Second-time Key Campaign attendees
    5.    Agency/Provider staff
    6.    Others
    To request the airfare only stipend, complete the attached application and return it to us no later than November 14, 2014.
