Educational Access and Improvement Mini-Grants

We recognize the pandemic is a severe crisis for students with disabilities. Without access to their usual mode of education, children with disabilities are sliding backward, losing academic, social, and emotional skills.

To address this issue in California, we are offering a handful of response grants to improve socio-emotional learning (SEL), communication access, and sensory development programs for youth (K-12) with disabilities.

Organizations may request amounts up to $2,500 to improve sensory development, communication access, or socio-emotional learning for youth (K-12) with disabilities. Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, schools, and government institutions are eligible to apply. Ability Central does not provide funds to individuals or faith-based organizations.

You must:

  • Be recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt organization or as a 501(c)(3) public charity, government agency, or school
  • Be incorporated in California
  • Serve students with disabilities in California

We are accepting submissions until 05/31/2022.
