Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations to increase accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. Funding is intended to support organizations that serve the broader community and foster accessibility and inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Proposals that address physical barriers through improvements, such as installing ramps, will only be considered if the requests also include a training component for staff or some other parallel effort to create a more inclusive culture. Organizations that already focus on serving individuals with disabilities may apply for support to make their services more broadly accessible.

Areas of special interest include:

  • Organizational assessment to identify barriers to inclusion of people with disabilities and plans to address those barriers. Barriers often exist not only in physical environments, but also on website and social media platforms, in staff knowledge and attitudes, and in organizational policies and procedures. You may choose to conduct an overall assessment of your agency’s accessibility (from physical space to policy) or to have a more targeted focus (making your website accessible or doing a communications audit).
  • Development and implementation of plans to remove barriers and become more intentional about inclusion.
  • Training programs for staff, board members or volunteers to develop the knowledge and attitudes needed to assure participation of people with disabilities as clients and colleagues.
  • Support for the inclusion of people with disabilities as volunteers, board or staff members.
