The purpose of these grants is to:  

  • Provide people with disabilities more social connections by participating in inclusive, meaningful community activities.
  • Help individuals and organizations understand how to offer and implement more inclusive programming.
  • Encourage community members to get to know someone with a disability and improve overall attitudes about people with disabilities.

 Examples of what you can do with the grant. 

  • Make school extracurriculars accessible to students with disabilities and be intentional about inviting them to participate.  
  • Host a community conversation to talk about ways to meaningfully include people with disabilities in community programs and then work on an idea or two over the next year.
  • Implement innovative ways to make families with children with disabilities feel welcome in their faith community.   
  • Create inclusive recreation programs instead of separate, adaptive programs for people with disabilities.
