  • Have representation at the White House conference on disability and physical activity
  • Look into small grant funding for the workgroup
  • Write a grant application about the political dynamics of the country surrounding the spectrum of physical activity and sport for people with disabilities.  Items to generate from grant would be a white paper or policy statement to be published in a journal.
