Ability Central is accepting LOIs for its 2022 funding cycle. LOIs are due by July 30, 2021, by 5 pm PST.

2022 grant cycle begins January 1, 2022. 

If you are a returning Grantee, that was awarded a grant from Ability Central (fka Disability Communications Fund) between January 1, 2016-present, you will only need to login to the portal and answer a few questions for the LOI, but you will automatically move on to the application phase.

For new applicants, the Ability Central application process consists of (1) a Letter of Intent (LOI) and (2) a full application.

(1) Letter of Intent

(2) Full application

  • For those new organizations whose LOI is approved, a full grant application will be requested. Detailed instructions will be made available to organizations that have been informed that their LOI was approved.

Ability Central uses Foundant, an online grants management system, to receive the LOIs and full applications. 


If you download the set of questions to work offline, please keep in mind, Ability Central is using skip logic to guide applicants to their applicable questions in the grant application portal. Questions will vary depending on your answers to previous questions. Therefore, we recommend you work within the portal. You can go back to it as many times as needed until you hit submit, just make sure you save.
