Foundation / Corporation
The Able Trust
Grants of up to $65,000 to Florida organizations for programs that assist people with disabilities in finding employment. Funding is intended for programs that place qualified individuals in full or part-time competitive positions for at least one year. Types of employment may include supported or transitional employment in an integrated setting consistent with the individual’s strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, and interests.
Requests should result in employment placement for participating individuals with disabilities and could encompass equipment and/or staffing needs of an applicant organization to expand an existing program in a new way or create a new program.
Proposals must present a thoughtful and realistic “Plan for Future Funding” that addresses the sustainability of the proposed program and project objectives when the grant period is complete.
Where possible, proposals should demonstrate an identified gap between services the Organization has funding for and what the community’s needs are.
In the review process, the disability populations proposed to be served are taken into consideration as The Foundation strives to serve diverse populations of disabilities in any given grant period.
Proposals with multiple sources of funding are encouraged.
