Ability Central is no longer accepting grant applications for 2020. Check back in June 2020 for our 2021 funding priorities and LOI application.
2020 grant cycle begins: January 1, 2020.
The Ability Central application process consists of (1) a Letter of Intent (LOI), and (2) a full application.
(1) Letter of Intent
- Ability Central Funding Priorities (PDF)
- Ability Central LOI Guidelines (PDF)
For more information about Ability Central's grantmaking requirements & procedures, please review our LOI FAQ (PDF), our evaluation criteria, recording and the slides of our LOI Information Webinar.
(2) Full application
For those 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.
