Ability Central, formerly known as the Disability Communications Fund (DCF), has been making grants and collaborating with community leaders to improve communication and information access for people with disabilities since 2010.
Ability Central has four (4) Funding Priorities. For a project to be considered, it must address one of the following areas:
- Training AT & AAC Professionals
- Research & Innovation
- Collaboration & Exchange
- Organizational Capacity Building
Ability Central uses a two-stage application process, beginning with a Letter of Intent (LOI). LOIs are due Tuesday, August 6, 2019, at 5 pm. A limited number of applicants will then be invited to submit a Full Application. The entire LOI/Application and review process takes approximately four (4) months. Funded projects are expected to start January 1, 2020.
Before you begin drafting your LOI, please carefully review the following resources to determine whether your organization and project may be eligible for Ability Central funding.
